The goal of optiTruck is to bring together the most advanced technologies from powertrain control and intelligent transport systems in order to achieve a global optimum for consumption of fuel (at least 20% reduction) as well as other energy sources and consumables while achieving Euro VI emission standards for heavy duty road haulage (40t).
The vision of NeMo is to create a Hyper-Network of new and existing tools, models and services which will provide seamless interoperability of electromobility services, creating an open, distributed and widely accepted ecosystem for electromobility. NeMo aims at bringing the successful interoperability paradigm of seamless roaming (as in mobile telecommunications) into the domain of electromobility services, paving the way for a Pan-European eRoaming framework
Energy Production and Distribution (EP&D) networks have rapidly increased their size and complexity. Thus, there is an increasing need of systems supporting the operational, regulatory and design decisions through a highly inter-disciplinary approach, where experts of all the concerned fields contribute to the definition of appropriate mathematical models.
This is particularly challenging because these models require the simultaneous use of many different mathematical optimization tools and the verification by experts of the underlying engineering and financial issues. The COST framework is instrumental for this Action to be able to coordinate the inter-disciplinary efforts of scientists and industrial players at the European level.
ICT services proposed by smartCEM will facilitate vehicle-sharing, public transportation or freight distribution and optimise the performance of EVs, increase public awareness and acceptance, and enhance the confidence of end users towards a new form of mobility: electro-mobility.
