Elektromobility at the Ruhr-University Bochum

Many people are not quite certain if an electric car would fit into their everyday life. A new smartphone app might help with this issue

A new app helps drivers decide if switching from a petrol-driven car to an electric car is a viable solution for them – and which vehicle model would be best suited to their individual requirements. It was developed by engineers at Ruhr-Universität Bochum under the auspices of Prof Dr Constantinos Sourkounis. Using the smartphone app, drivers can record typical routes. Based on the gathered data, the program generates a list of vehicle models that would meet the driver’s requirements, for example cars with sufficient range. Information pertaining to cost saving can also be provided.

Also available as web application

People who do not own an Android smartphone or a car can access a simplified, gratuitous version of the service online. There, users can enter typical route data to generate information similar to those supplied by the app.
