Frankfurt RheinMain connected – services driving e-mobility (DieMoRheinMain)
Avoiding barriers when using electric vehicles
Especially in metropolitan areas that already offer e-mobility options it is not the technology which holds up e-mobility solutions. The real challenges to widespread implementation lie in customizing e-mobility options, integrating them into the existing transportation and mobility system and creating necessary conditions for a broad implementation and usability. The DieMoRheinMain project aims to embed e-mobility options in information systems and to make these options user-friendly and appealing to specific target groups. Recommendations and appropriate conditions will be developed in order to simplify the implementation of electro-mobility offers. This will be achieved through the development of new service packages addressed to users, businesses, the public sector and transportation companies to make e-mobility a safe and convenient element in the transportation and mobility system.
Connecting services through networks
DieMoRheinMain targets areas that suffer from obvious barriers concerning e-mobility – availability, charge times, lack of transparency, uncertainties, range and the cost of a rapid and wide rollout. The project puts together a services portfolio that offers target groups all the relevant information, tailored specifically to e-mobility. In the metropolitan area of Frankfurt Rhein-Main, existing stand-alone e-mobility services are being dovetailed with those developed by the project partners. This is being done through process integration, modularization and standardization to result in system services within a service network.
About integration into existing systems for application
The results of the project directly apply to projects and services of the region Frankfurt RheinMain; therefore, they can be implemented quickly. Cities, administrative districts and transport authorities will surely favor the “community tool” for creating a new e-mobility infrastructure and mobility options. This will mean travelers and businesses can benefit from straightforward, intermodal and multimodal mobility that is geared toward e-mobility. By publishing in accredited journals and by presenting at conferences, the project’s scientific partners will ensure their R&D results reach and be applied by the wider scientific community.
