Energy ManagEment and RechArging for efficient eLectric car Driving

EMERALD addresses the improvement of the energy efficiency of fully electric vehicles (FEVs) through ICT means. To this end, EMERALD will deliver clear and specific advances over the state-of-the-art (SoA), focusing on energy use optimization and on the seamless integration of the FEV into the transport and energy infrastructure. The goal is to assist the FEV in becoming a successful commercial product.

EMERALD will pursue the following S&T objectives: 

  • Design and Development of an Integrated In-vehicle Energy Management and Advanced Driver Assistance System (IIEM-ADAS)
  • Design and Development of a Central Platform for Data Integration and Interface with External Systems (Power Utilities, Recharging Infrastructure, Traffic Information Providers)
  • Design and Development of an Enhanced Power Demand Prediction and Power Flow Support Management System
  • Design and Development of a FEV-oriented Traffic and Power Flow Simulation Platform
  • Energy-aware Real-size Driving Simulator for FEV Driver Training and Impact Assessment
  • Validation and evaluation of developed solutions through extensive simulation and field trials
