Measurement and analysis of vehicle movements among potential early adopters of electric vehicles
Research Project , 2012 – 2014

This proposed project for data collection, analysis and tool development generates documentation and assessment of conditions for electrification were based on actual conditions. The project's research question is: What gives vehicle usage patterns of the conditions for electrification of bilflottan among potential "early adopters"? The project will - with GPS measure car movement patterns among 100 multi-car households in an appropriate commuting distance in the Gothenburg area for two months each; - analyse the conditions from a user for the electrification of oscillating multi-car household cars by using the data collected, - develop a visualization tool to facilitate analysis of car movement patterns.
