Electro-mobility (for the purpose of this document, Electro-Mobility is the mobility offer by electric vehicles that are fully integrated into a well adapted transport system) is seen as one of the largest opportunities to radically change today’s transport system and make a quantum leap into the next generation of sustainable mobility. The aim is to contribute to a pre-deployment and wider uptake of smart connected electromobility as a radical departure from today’s transport system towards lower carbon emissions. The Pilot actions will test urban and inter-urban ICT services that facilitate and enhance the user experience of electrical vehicles. Such ICT services would support real-time interaction between the driver, the vehicle and the transport and energy infrastructures. This includes for instance Electric Vehicle pre-trip and on-trip planning and optimization including energy use and charging as well as vehicle to grid connectivity, through e.g. co-operative systems. ICT support systems to facilitate car-sharing schemes for electrical vehicles in urban areas and the associated business models, billing and seamless integration with other modes of transport is another area of interest for this objective.
