ELVITEN will create a network of 40 electric bicycles. ELVITEN will offer an incentive tool and monitoring apps.

In Málaga, 40 e-bikes to be offered as sharing services.

ELVITEN will provide free testing. In Málaga, ELVITEN tackles owners, sharers and deliverers.

2nd City Workshop in Malaga

On 11 December 2019, the ELVITEN second city workshop in Malaga took place at the premises of the University of Malaga. In the first session of the workshop, Francisco Salas (Managing Director of Promalaga) and Prof. Dr. D. Alejandro Rodríguez Gómez (Director of the Engineering Faculty) welcomed the audience with an introductory speech, followed by a presentation of the ELVITEN project by Isabel Pascual Villamor.

The following sessions included presentations and discussions about sustainable mobility in Malaga. The topic was presented with data and statistics on the number of vehicles, the connections to other towns, and the number of trips by different means of transport, also comparing Malaga’s transportation strategy with other cities of its size. Many students participated in the debate about the Malaga model and how to contribute to increasing sustainability in the city.

Moreover, other sustainable mobility city initiatives were discussed during the workshop. For instance, another H2020 funded project such as the ‘Meister’ was presented. The objective of the project is to change the electric mobility market, providing interoperable platforms and services to cities for easy and barrier-free access to the charging and billing service for electric vehicles. Also, the use of renewable energy sources and self-generation methods for recharging electric vehicles requires improvementThe municipal officials have highlighted the interest in Malaga to continue being a pioneer in the installation of these technologies that involve a direct reduction of CO2 pollution in the city.

Results from road transport research on new mobility

On 4 and 5 December 2019, ELVITEN joined the 3rd edition of the European conference ‘Results from road transport research in Horizon 2020 projects’, organised by the European Commission, ERTRAC (European Road Transport Research Advisory Council) and EGVIA (European Green Vehicles Initiative Association) in Brussels.

Dr. Evangelia Portouli, Institute of Communication & Computer Systems (ICCS) presented the ELVITEN results at the conference.

The conference explored the results of transport research in various areas such as green vehicles, safety and automated road transport. Projects funded by Horizon 2020 presented what they have discovered, how they tackled the hurdles and resolved them and what are the next research steps in the fields covered by their activities.

The session ‘New mobility paradigm, new vehicles, how could the mobility of tomorrow look like?’ featured five H2020 projects: ELVITEN, MoTiV, STARS, STEVE and WEEVIL.

After each session, a dedicated Q&A session raised interesting discussions and conclusions on ELVITEN developments:

  • In Rome, users are not aware of the scooter’s functionalities and do not know that a driver’s license and a helmet is required for the usage.
  • Users of scooters/e-bikes and three-wheelers tend to be younger, while 4-wheelers rather represent retired people.
  • The collected data implies that scooters/e-bikes and three-wheelers are better for sharing, 4 wheelers seem to more efficient in being owned.
  • Collecting data on shared e-mobility services is not hindering customers from using them. However, in general, private users (owners) are not keen on letting their data being collected for research purposes.

Recordings of the sessions and presentations can be found on the website.

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.
