Crossing Borders

Cross-border interoperable services for electric mobility.

January 7th 2013 until June 30th 2016

Executive summary

The main focus of this project is to gather results from the projects EmporA and EmporA2 in order to develop and expand a number of new intelligence systems. This project mainly deals with ways to improve the charging infrastructure of electric vehicles. Crossing Borders combines existing and future projects in the field of electric mobility and focuses on the charging infrastructure along an international route from Bratislava to Vienna, Salzburg, and Munich. Along this route there is a cross-border network of quick charging stations, an intelligent access and billing system, and a system for interoperable, intermodal routing which was set up in cooperation with partners in Austria, Germany, and Slovakia. The long-term goal of the Crossing Borders project is to penetrate the market in the field of electric mobility, so that people will be more responsive to the idea of owning an electric car. UBIMET collected a variety of usage data during the operational phase. This allowed an initial verification of underlying working hypotheses.
