A project in the context of Initiative der Bundesregierung: Schaufenster ElektromobilitätRegion Berlin-Brandenburg

This project belongs to the well known initiative of the Federal Ministry "Schaufenster Elektromobilität, Region Berlin-Brandenburg"

The main goals of “Smart e-User” are to carry out the implementation of electric-drive vehicle fleets (up to 3,5 T.) in different commercial applications and analyse the process in order to extend the use of this means of transport in Berlin’s City metropolitan area for goods delivery and private transport services.

The motivation is to integrate this sort of vehicles into the business models good delivery services and private transport services, represented by the partners who provide these end-services. Moreover it is also important to analyse the possibilities of the City-Logistic concept (e.g., the use of transport hubs allocated within the city center in the context of parcel delivery) by realising how the different transport means should be interconnected and which area should cover.

A complex and transparent IT solution is being designed to support the end-service partners to accomplish the aforementioned goals. This IT-solution will support the partners in the following two fields: tour planning and energy management. On the one hand, a navigation tool is used to optimise the routes and compile driving information for further analysis. On the other hand, energy optimisation and charge controlling algorithms will help the partners to reduce their energetic costs. Moreover these parts are connected creating a cooperative system that facilitates the major goals achievement.

In addition to this, the collected data from the traffic and energy fields is being used in a simulated environment to study the potential user groups within the commercial transport context. With this simulation it is intended to extend the the application of the electric-drive mobility concept, by supporting the process with the obtained solutions on the energy, economics, logistics, transport or city development fields.
