Currently, public charging stations for electric
vehicles are usually built as pilot projects. The
metropol-E research project, which was award-
ed the status of a lighthouse project by the Ger-
man federal government, currently develops a
municipal electric fleet concept for the city of
Dortmund. PTV analyses demographic, structur-
al and transport factors to work out location in-
dicators for charging infrastructure in individual
geographical zones.
Autolib’ in Paris – the first carsharing project
offering e-cars only – intends to provide its us-
ers with information on the battery status and
charging stations in reach. In addition to the re-
quired geographical referencing, PTV developed
navigation solutions and components which
make e-mobility practical for everyday business.
PTV is also engaged in the iZeus project from
IKT. The goal here is to integrate e-mobility in
private and commercial urban transport. Ad-
ditional intelligent services optimise the use of
mixed company fleets or calculate the remaining
range based on the state of the battery, vehicle
parameters, route and weather conditions.
PTV also participates in three projects of the
leading-edge cluster Electric Mobility South-
West: I-eMM analysing demand in public urban
transport with respect to linking e-mobility and
information services for their users, eFlotte
for managing e-vehicle fleets and the related
charging infrastructure, and Green Navigation
for planning and recommending individual en-
ergy-optimised routes for extending the range.
