New carsharing concepts and electromobility are two important fields of innovation and research in the transport sector in the last years and represent the major elements of energy-efficient and emission-free mobility services. The combination of these two systems-electric e-carsharing – appears as a promising approach to overcome many urban challenges in the area of environment and mobility. The success of such systems depends on the acceptance and willingness of customers to use. The important precondition is that electric vehicles be loaded from renewable energy.
The project WiMobil takes care of these preconditions and examines the effect of e-carsharing systems on mobility and environment in urban areas.
InnoZ will conduct the analysis of the modal share is mainly based on mobility tracking. Conventional approaches are no longer sufficient, in order to understand the behavioral changes of users accurately. Therefore, InnoZ will equip the users of e-carsharing with GPS tracking (stand-alone and as a smart phone application) and observe consequently their mobility behavior. The indications of changes in mobility behavior can be quantified and identified on a long-term, as well as the impact of e-carsharing in general.
