Ecomobil

The focus of the ECoMobility project lies on the implementation of an innovative connected mobility concept with battery electric vehicles, pedelecs and the public transport. ECoMobility addresses the technical implementation of the mobility system and the intelligent charging system. Furthermore, the acceptance of electric mobility and incentives for an environmentally friendly behavior (e.g eco-driving) are examined. Analyzing the cost effectiveness of the connected mobility concepts and developing viable business models are the additional research aims.

The project is divided into four main parts: Eco-type adaptive, E-Connected, Ecological and Economic.

The examination of user acceptance of electric mobility and the investigation of incentives (e.g. for an environmentally friendly behavior) are included in the ECo-type adaptive part. Further two parts (ECological and E-Connected) are based on the technical implementations. ECological considers the implementation and analyses of eco-driving and an intelligent charging system to use the most of renewable energies. The integration of server structure, data logging unit and booking system (i.e. Web-App) in a complete mobility-on-demand-system is the goal of E-Connected. Analyzing the cost effectiveness of the connected mobility concepts and developing viable business models are the research aims of the EConomic part

Interested users can register via the following questionnaire for the free use of the electric vehicles

Focus areas of the professorship of Cognitive and Engineering Psychology within the project:

  • Investigation of user-requirements of connected mobility systems
  • Implementation of an incentive system to motivate sustainable mobility and driving behavior
  • Analysis of user acceptance, driving behavior, attitude and adaptation in terms of energy-efficient driving
