This project uses interdisciplinary approaches to undertake research on a real-time-capable telematics platform, configurable for a wide variety of applications.This would exploit the potential of telematics and remote vehicle diagnosis to raise the efficiency, availability and safety of electric vehicles. Since electric vehicles only have a fraction of the energy available compared to conventional vehicles, they must use it sparingly. This necessitates the acquisition and analysis of vehicle condition data (e.g. battery charge condition) and environmental data (e.g. charging opportunities and rates) by ICT systems. High-performance data acquisition and analysis systems can make it possible to efficiently use smart mobility approaches, and also design new ones, such as intermodal mobility services in the public transport network.
Using interdisciplinary approaches, research in the ELISE project is being performed on a real-time-capable telematics platform, configurable for a wide variety of applications. Here, new concepts are being studied for a database and data provision mechanism (data gateway) within the vehicle that is integrated into the system, to make it possible to locally utilise data from the vehicle and the environment that describe conditions. The project includes a charging/discharging unit (emergency charging) that works autonomously in the electric vehicle. Raising operational reliability has the potential to minimize possible reservations on the part of the user.
The project involves exploiting the potential of telematics and remote vehicle diagnosis to raise efficiency, availability and safety of electric vehicles. Holistic and systematic approaches allow the interactions between the driver, the vehicle and the environment to be taken into account in new product ideas. It also has potential to raise efficiency in a sustained way and accelerate the development of electric vehicles and their components.
