ELVITEN ICT tools and dashboard

Different ICT tools have been developed under the ELVITEN project to collect data of the usage of ELVITEN’s means of transport in each city: Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Rome and Trikala. Data coming from such tools will be used later on to develop efficient business models. You can find below a short summary of all applications developed and used within the ELVITEN project.

Digital Coach app: the app is a fleet monitoring tool sending location and telemetry data to the data warehouse to create a detailed driving analysis. Moreover, a summary of trip and weather is created and transmitted. This app is used in every project city.

Booking App: this app collects booking messages regarding vehicles, charging points and parking spaces. It is currently used in Trikala, Malaga and Bari.

Serious Game App: this app combines elements of fun and entertainment for users of EL-Vs in project cities, providing riders with useful information about the project, the benefits of the use of EL-Vs and touristic or interesting places in the city. It is currently used in Trikala, Malaga and Bari and will be soon available in Rome.

Smart App: this app is an end-user application that allows an ELVITEN user to interact with the incentive system and fill in questionnaires. It is used in Trikala, Malaga, Bari, Genoa and Rome.

D-Mobility app: the app offers charging services to Duferco Energia e-mobility customers. It is only used in Genoa.

There is also a new tool on the ELVITEN website – dashboard, which provides up to date information (updated every 24 hours) regarding EL-Vs usage in all six European pilot cities. The data being provided on the website comes among other sources from the black boxes fixed on the ELVITEN EL-Vs. Find the dashboard here and check how each city is performing.

ELVITEN 5th General Assembly in Zurich

On 30 and 31 October 2019 the ELVITEN project 5th General Assembly and Steering Committee meetings were held in Zurich. The consortium partners met to discuss the status of the ELVITEN project and future plans for the last year of the H2020 funded project. The meeting was hosted by ELVITEN’s partner KYBURZ Switzerland AG which is providing the electric light vehicles for the project demonstrations in Genoa and Trikala.

The General Assembly was opened by ELVITEN’s coordinator – Dr. Angelos Amditis who highlighted  the most important phase of collecting the data provided by ELVITEN ELVs users, trips, dashboard and ICT tools. During the assembly project partners discussed ELVITEN’s progress status within the last months with a special focus on ongoing demonstrations in project cities: Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Rome and Trikala. As part of the GA meeting in Zurich project partners participated in KYBURZ Switzerland AG company visit with a few tour options e.g. production and supply chain management; second life vehicle, lithium battery recycling, service, research & development.

So far, some tangible achievements within the project have been made. The daily collected data coming from ELVITEN’s trips, users experience and supporting ICT tools in each city are publicly available via dashboard on ELVITEN website . All the project cities offer a short or long term use of ELVs for registrered users and demonstrations will continue till April 2020. Project partners from Berlin and Trikala have already organised the second city workshops. The remaining city partners will follow with such workshops by the end of November. The main goal of organising 2nd city workshop is  to single out the criticalities and the difficulties for improving the attractiveness of the demonstrated ELV services, tools and incentives. Furthermore, the ELVITEN project has entered the next phase of analysing the gathered data and it moves further to create the aimed business models plans to boost the potential for the market uptake of EL-Vs, as well as to create an exploitation strategy and innovation management plan. Moreover, the number of Regional Support Groups members have increased and reached already 70 supporters.

The ELVITEN project promotes innovation, sustainability and connected urban mobility in Europe through demonstrating the usefulness of electrified L-category vehicles for urban transportation.
