Energy ManagEment and RechArging for efficient eLectric car Driving

EMERALD focuses on energy use optimisation and on the seamless integration of the FEV into the transport and energy infrastructure, the goal being to assist the FEV in becoming a successful commercial product.

To this end, EMERALD innovates a range of advanced ICT solutions, each one seamlessly integrated with the others, including:

  • Dynamic energy-driven management of FEV auxiliaries, tightly integrated with consumption prediction functionality, enabling pre-emptive energy conservation measures.
  • Energy-efficient long-range route planning and optimisation, enabling extension of FEV’s driving range and automatic scheduling of recharging stops en route.
  • Performance-centric machine learning for consumption prediction, introducing optimisation and cooperative training of machine learning functions targeted for energy consumption and traffic prediction based on experience.
  • Driver profiling functionalities, through monitoring of acceleration/braking patterns, for the enhancement of route consumption prediction functionality.
  • V2G traffic and consumption data synchronisation, as a new cooperative information-sharing scheme.
  • User-centric charge and discharge management, enabling automatically-generated, optimal for the user, charge and discharge schedules, accessible both on-board and on his mobile phone.

EMERALD will also introduce: Enhanced FEV-related power demand prediction and power flow management support, taking advantage of consumption patterns as shared in a cooperative manner by the FEVs themselves as well as from FEVs’ recharging bookings; cooperative FEV fleet management, though holistic and dynamic; multi-parameter; fleet control optimisation, taking into account energy and recharging limitations; FEV-specific driver training for energy efficiency.
