Smart Connected Electro Mobility

Electric Vehicles (EV) are underutilised due to their limitations and lack of people’s confidence in this transport mode.  

Four European cities/regions (Barcelona, Gipuzkoa-San Sebastian, Newcastle and Turin) have come together to demonstrate the role of ICT solutions for cities and citizens in addressing shortcomings of electromobility

The smartCEM project aims to minimize the current EV limitations, by applying advanced mobility services to existing multimodal electro-mobility transport modes.

The objectives of the project were the following: 

1. Prove that user acceptance of electric vehicles can be increased by at least 15% thanks to smartCEM services. 

2. Evaluate how much the efficiency of transport can be optimised, taking into account environmental sustainability

3. Develop tools for measuring, monitoring and assessing carbon emissions. 

4. Identify and address all deployment elements such as business models, legal aspects and privacy.

5. Optimization of energy use in the vehicle and infrastructure. 

6. Support pan-European interoperability by standardisation between operations performed by different services and facilitating the interoperability between different systems and vehicles. 

7. Complete integration of new services such as car-sharing within the public transport system. 

8. Expand the pilot to more cities, operators, or service providers. 


ICOOR was involved in: the development, adaptation and verification of the platform interface according to the definitions; the collection and transfer of data from the pilot site and methodology specification; the development of tools for carbon emissions; the design of questionnaires for the assessment of user acceptance and experience.

In particular, ICOOR contributed to the technical architecture establishment and in the technical adaptation works for the pilot sites. ICOOR contributed also in providing the resources to ensure that the vehicles equipped with the SmartCEM service continue to operate beyond the end of the project. Finally, ICOOR was one of the main contributors in the evaluation framework, in the definition of the evaluation criteria and performance indicators.

ICOOR members: University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
