Electric vehicles have arrived. The debate has shifted away from when to go electric: it’s now about how to do so in the most energy-efficient, safe, economic and driver-friendly way.
In parallel, connected vehicles are the next step towards smart vehicles, integrating apps and services in vehicles in the same way as in our phones. A completely seamless experience.
Passionate about innovation in this field, at Enide we work with connected and electric vehicles, as well as the supporting infrastructure and the socioeconomic context in which cities and regions can facilitate the mass acceptation of this exciting technology.
We’re actively involved in the deployment of connected and/or electric vehicles, collaborating with all stakeholders in the sector: car manufacturers, technology providers, energy companies, drivers’ associations and public authorities.
We work closely with associations like Polis, the network of European cities and regions developing innovative technologies and policies for local transport. We also collaborate with UITP, the international association of public transport authorities and operators, policy-makers, research institutes and others involved in the industry.
European-level projects we have collaborated in include:
Inframix aims to prepare road infrastructure to accommodate for the step-wise introduction of automated vehicles with specific affordable adaptations and to support it with new models and tools. How? by developing and upgrading elements from the existing physical infrastructure to this new digital one, integrating information received by automated vehicles.
As part of the consortium in the Fabric project, we investigated the potential of on-road solutions for charging vehicles to tackle “range anxiety”.
We analyzed the challenges and opportunities of the use of electric vehicles in city transport as part of the ZeEUS project, which aims to develop a zero emission and fully electric urban bus solutions across the EU.
Here are some examples of how we can team up with you:
Compiling research or strategies for the deployment of (conductive or wireless) charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, including for wireless charging both static and dynamic (vehicle in movement) charging scenarios.
Analyzing the impact of the use of electric vehicles in public transportation systems.
Developing new technology such as mobile apps for electric connected vehicles certified to be used while driving.
Who works with us?
In the automotive sector, we work with Fiat/CRF, Volvo, and Renault on connected and electric vehicles.
