EcoGem claims that the success and user acceptability of Fully Electric Vehicles (FEVs) will predominantly depend on their electrical energy consumption rate and the corresponding degree of autonomy that they can offer. EcoGem aims at providing efficient ICT-based solutions to this great issue, by designing and developing a FEV-oriented highly-innovative Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), equipped with suitable monitoring, learning, reasoning and management capabilities that will help increase the FEV’s autonomy and energy efficiency. EcoGem will base its approach on rendering the FEV: capable of reaching the desired destinations through the most energy efficient routes possible; fully aware of surrounding recharging points/stations while on move. To achieve its goals, EcoGem will develop novel techniques: on-going learning-based traffic prediction; optimised route planning; interactive and inter-operative traffic, fleet and recharging management via V2X communication.
