Mission and Objectives

The general objective of the proposal will be to  deploy a set of ICT-based services for European Vehicles focused on the integration of innovative technologies; thus enhancing the user experience with an increasing geographical scope for the 3 kind of pilots: urban, regional and transnational.

Furthermore, the project will contribute to the European goal of creating a sustainable transport system with lower carbon emissions.

Specific objectives classified according to the technologies involved:

  1.  ICT solutions and smart systems integration:
  • To make the driver aware of the remaining energy and of the resulting restrictions in terms of range and comfort.
  • To recommend and guide the driver to the most suitable recharging station, according to the battery status and the grid availability.
  • To conveniently book a charging point in advance at the suggested station simplifying the payment procedure with different charging point managers and receiving notifications when the EV is conveniently charged.
  • To guarantee the access to reviews including information about the charging history, events, charging stations utilized.
  1. Type of vehicle and type of energy: 
  • To make use of innovative tools for communication vehicle - infrastructure - control centre. This involves real-time management of large amounts of information from different system actors: clients, infrastructure, vehicles and operators as well as its processing and distribution using optimised communication channels. 
  • While cooperative systems onboard are still in a preliminary phase of adoption, the ever increasing penetration of smartphones and mobile devices among consumers sets an outstanding opportunity to deliver these value added services directly to the drivers and encourage them to start using fully electric road transport solutions.
