eCo-FEV wants to shape the future of Fully Electric Vehicles (FEVs). With the help of eCo-FEV´s intermediate platform and advanced technical services ranging from telematics to charging control the mass market introduction of FEVs will be within reach.
It is commonly estimated that FEVs will benefit the social community in several ways, e.g. saving the overall used energy, reducing dependence on fossil fuel and thus impacting the environment. But due to limited range, a lack of charging spots and insufficient telematics services FEVs are still some kind of niche products.
Electrification of vehicles has to become affordable, removing the actual bottlenecks of availability of charging stations and of low user acceptance due to high vehicle cost, long recharging time and limited ranges. So, eCo-FEV aims to develop a cooperative architecture in order to combine the information of several infrastructures for FEVs and users. It is the objective of the eCo-FEV project to propose this open architecture in order to enable the extensibility and flexibility of the eCo-FEV concept in the follow up deployment in different implementation situations, e.g. implementation site local requirements, specific use case requirements, client requirements etc.
Overall, eCo-FEV will promote:
the FEV introduction in mass market,
the integration of FEV into the existing infrastructures,
a smart cooperative infrastructure for telematics services,
an efficient multi-mode innovative FEV charging,
the urban co-modality mobility,
- the environmental protection.
