SMART MOBILITY IN SMART CITY

MOBINCITY

SMART MOBILITY IN SMART CITY

Call for proposal: 
FP7-2012-ICT-GC

Background & policy context: 

Urban transport is responsible for about a quarter of CO2 emissions from transport. The gradual phasing out of 'conventionally-fuelled' vehicles from the urban environment is a major contribution to significant reduction of oil dependence, greenhouse gas emissions and local air and noise pollution. Fully Electric Vehicles (FEV), for public and private transport, can contribute significantly to the lowering of the current pollution levels. However, the FEV use is currently facing several weaknesses which are delaying its wider deployment, mainly related to overall limited efficiency and limited driving range.

Objectives: 

With this regard, MOBINCITY aims at the optimization of FEV autonomy range and the increase in energy efficiency thanks to the development of a complete ICT-based integrated system able to interact between driver, vehicle and transport and energy infrastructures, taking advantage of the information provided from these sources in order to optimise both energy charging and discharging processes (trip planning and routing).

Main specific objectives are:

To develop a system to be installed within the vehicle able to receive information from the surrounding environment, which can have influence in the vehicle performance (traffic information, weather and road conditions and energy grid).

To optimise the trip planning and routing of FEV using information from these external sources including alternatives from other transport modes adapted to user’s needs.

To define efficient and optimum charging strategies (including routing) adapted to user and FEV needs and grid conditions.

To implement additional energy saving methods (as driving modes and In-Car Energy Management Services) within the FEV interaction with the driver.

In order to reach its objectives, MOBINCITY joins together an outstanding group of 13 partners, coming from five different countries, covering relevant sectors as traffic management, energy, ICT and telecommunications and automotive industry.

Methodology: 

The project MOBINCITY will be divided into nine different work packages. The proposed structure is based on the different interactions that will be developed within the project, as showed in the following figure. It is important to highlight the close interconnection among the different activities to be carried out within the project:

WP1. Definition of requirements and system design
WP2. Interaction of FEV with transportation infrastructures
WP3. Interaction of FEV with energy infrastructure
WP4. Communication Systems
WP5. Adaptive strategies for trip planning, charging and driving
WP6. System integration and validation
WP7. Field tests
WP8. Dissemination and Exploitation
WP9. Project Management
