RELEVANT – Realising Efficient Charging of Electric Cars with User-Centered Smart Technology

The project Realising Efficient Charging of Electric Cars with User-Centered Smart Technology (RELEVANT) aims to map users’ preferences and expectations of smart charging of electric and hybrid cars. 

Summary:

The project RELEVANT (Realising Efficient Charging of Electric Cars with User-Centered Smart Technology) aims to map users' preferences and expectations of smart charging of electric and hybrid cars. The project partners work together to develop smart and user-friendly solutions for sustainable charging of electric and hybrid cars.

The goal of RELEVANT is to design an intuitive user interface for smart charging of electric cars. This is done by allowing users to participate and continuously evaluate different solutions during the project. Families will test and evaluate functionality and user-friendliness. The project is a first step towards the vision that electric car owners will be able to utilize their self-produced electricity from for example solar panels for charging their vehicle and thereby contribute to a more sustainable society.

The RELEVANT project brings together representatives from the automotive industry, the power industry, research institutes, and researchers in pedagogy and digital service design.
