Mobility 2.0

The research will develop and test an in-vehicle commuting assistant for FEV mobility, resulting in more reliable and energy-efficient electro-mobility.

In order to achieve a maximum impact, Mobility2.0 takes an integrated approach of addressing the main bottlenecks of urban FEV mobility:

  • ‘range anxiety’ related to the limited FEV range, scarcity of parking spaces with public recharging spots, and the congestion of urban roads. Our integrated approach means the application developed by Mobility2.0 will utilise co-operative systems to simultaneously consider these bottlenecks, so that such an optimisation can be achieved which still guarantees reliable transportation for each FEV owner. Mobility2.0 will focus on assisting the daily urban commute, which represents the bulk of urban mobility.

Mobility 2.0 outcomes will be


an FEV-specific multi-modal urban guidance application implemented for prolific smart-phone platforms; this application will include the integrated reservation of a suitable FEV recharging spot, while also prioritising FEVs with low battery levels for the reservation, and making optimal use of the available public transportation along the journey.


the above application will include the capability to allow municipal/utility control over the temporal and spatial aspects of recharging; the corresponding tools will be dynamic electricity pricing and a map analysis framework


the project will specify the scalable broadcasting of FEV recharging spot notification over 5.9 GHz networks and MBMS technology


the project will specify and contribute to standardisation the technology which enables plugged-in FEVs to act as 5.9 GHz road-side units, maintaining infrastructure connectivity via the V2G interface.


end-to-end validation of the above results at two test sites

Besides FEV manufacturing, FEVs may also be produced by the conversion of traditional vehicles into FEVs. Mobility2.0 shall ensure that its results are applicable to both FEV types.

The ‘Mobility 2.0’ proposal name is meant to express that the co-operative electromobility technology targeted by this project is a next level concept for personal mobility.

Contribution DACS

One of the research areas of the DACS group is Vehicular Networking. Vehicular networks allow cars to communicate between themselves and with roadside infrastructure to make road traffic safer, more efficient, and “greener”.

Within the Mobility 2.0 project, the DACS group, together with partners from a number of European countries, will develop and test a cooperative commuting assistant for fully electrical vehicles, resulting in more reliable and energy-efficient electro-mobility.
