E-mobility has to become a day-to-day experience for users - to provide state-of-the-art technical and organisational products and services for customers, CROSSING BORDERS bundels efforts in research and development activities. User-driven services and infrasrtucture management solutions on the one hand as well as an intermodal trip planning tool and incentive systems are developed and tested in the project. 

Roaming

Most users of electric vehicles cannot use charging services of diferent providers because bi- or multilateral roaming services are not provided. In most cases, roaming agreements between e-mobility providers or with roaming platforms are missing, which are a prerequisite to offer interoperable services for customers. 

The aim of CROSSING BORDRS is to develop and provide an easy-to-use access to the charging network for customers of the respective e-mobility providers in the project.

The partners in CROSSING BORDERS develop an IT backend system that allows to integrate different hard- and software systems of different providers on regional and cross-border level. This is a prerequisite to offer roaming services for customers. 

On the other hand the connection to roaming platforms and the organisation of roaming contracts (bilateral and B2B) is necessary. In CROSSING BORDERS several roaming platforms will be analysed and tested.

This work package is managed by partner E.ON in cooperation with VERBUND, ZSE, SMATRICS, Siemens CVC and PDTS.

Intermodal trip planning, bonification systems and serious gaming

Each and every day we are faced with decisions, this is also true for our mobility choices: how we go to school or work or how we plan our business and holiday trips. To optimize where ever posibble, regarding price and our ecology, affects our mobility choices, but also if there is an alternative mode of transport available for us (i.e taking the train instea of the private car or the bicycle instead of the public transport bus). If many peapole come to the same decisions regarding their mobility mode, this coud lead to congestion, which leads to higher costs and energy consumtion for all users.

Efficient routing and bonification systems could effect user behaviour and subsequently have a positive effect on the overall transportsystem. Energy efficient driving skills, but also information on alternative transport modes could lead to a more sustainalbe transport sector. 

The aim of CROSSING BORDERS is to develop and test intermodal routing and bonification systems for cross-border, intermodal mobility. 

A prerequisite is the availability of heterogenous systems for energy-efficient and multi-modal routing inthe respective regions and countries.

Bonification systems could comprise monetary incentives as well as additional service offers, competitions, prizes and others. The bonification should lead to a behavioural change of the user. The focus in CROSSING BORDERS is on increasing the knowledge / usage of e-mobility and in general to provide users with eco-friendly mobility offers for their day-to-day trips. 

The work package is led by AIT, the following partners contribute to the implementation of tasks: Fluidtime, IFSTTAR/ENTPE, ovos media, Siemens CVC and Ubimet.
