The challenge
If cities do not significantly reduce their particulate emissions, they face severe penalties and traffic collapse due to local driving bans. Especially in cities with high emission levels, emission-free mobility through the electrification of means of transport is of great importance. Intelligent charging management is particularly necessary with an increasing number of e-vehicles in order to avoid additional loads in the power grid and, if necessary, to enable relief. Within the framework of the iMOVE project, a platform is to be created between 2017 and 2019 to provide intermodal mobility services and optimally control electrically powered fleets, taking into account predicted utilisation of networks and means of transport.

The approach
The iMove project meets this challenge by developing an intermodal ICT solution in Stuttgart that enables integrated processing of all relevant data from the energy supply, charging infrastructure and transport system. A flexible system platform will collect data from traffic, charging and energy systems and determine an optimal traffic flow and energy consumption. Bottlenecks are to be identified and avoided preventively with demand, condition and capacity utilisation forecasts. The comprehensive implementation of intelligent incentive and control options for integrated route and charge management for electric fleets (e.g. special e-mobility tariffs) support the optimal use of resources.
