Potential of electric mobility
Principal investigator: Mariya Sodenkamp
Research questions: Assessment of Destinations Reachability by Electric Vehicles based on Driving Data Analytics
The limited driving range of electric vehicles is one of the biggest deployment challenges for electromobility. A ground-up re-design is needed to fully take advantage of the design freedoms and the opportunities in defining the architecture of battery management systems in coordination with local electric grid capabilities.
In this project, we develop data-mining-based approaches for accurate prediction of the electric vehicle driving range and grid impact that utilize vehicle sensor data – specifically, GPS-based location data and smart meter data of private households. We simulate battery electric vehicles to examine the impact of different deployment levels of public charging facilities on the range under different micro-generation scenarios. Furthermore, we develop mobile applications to empower individual drivers stimulate EV adoption.
