Project Details

The smartCEM pilot aims to demonstrate the potential for electric vehicles (EVs) in an urban and interurban context and to encourage the uptake of EVs through advanced information services. Those services (EV-navigation, EV-efficient driving, EV-trip management, EV-charging station management, EV-sharing management) will be demonstrated in four European cities/regions: Barcelona, Gipuzkoa-San Sebastian, Newcastle and Turin.

  • EV-navigation starts from eco-navigation and integrates EV-related Point of Interest (POIs) like charging points or charging stations.
  • EV-efficiency driving is intended to support energy efficient driving styles.
  • EV-trip management starts from existing multi-modal journey planning systems and provides a new management system that includes EV-sharing as a transport option.
  • EV-charging station management includes station operation, station energy management, power supply status, range estimator, charging point booking, payment and scheduling.
  • EV-sharing management starts from existing on-line and off-line systems for vehicles.

The Transport Operations Research Group at Newcastle University will coordinate the operation of all four pilot sites and is responsible for managing the Newcastle site.
