In 2018/19 [ui!]uk participated in an INNOVATE UK-funded consortium to build our software platform which integrates the heterogeneous charge infrastructure and application providers to provide a seamless automated charge service to the driver, delivered via an app.
To deliver this solution the project focused on three key objectives:
ELECTRA delivers innovation in two key and linked streams. Firstly, taking the current heterogeneous charging mechanisms of the EV sector to a level of usability and integration that gives EV users the confidence required to enable mass adoption. Secondly, to prove this innovation in a previously ignored context of a rural-urban county of Oxfordshire. Innovation is centred around a communications-hardware and software platform that enables EV users to prebook their charging via a V2I (Vehicle to Infrastructure) platform, allows efficient use of charging bays (by notifying users that their charging is completed) and provides a method for the EV charging bay to communicate to the connected vehicle.
