Fully Electric Vehicles (FEVs) represent a promising solution for the reduction of fuel consumption, air and noise pollution in urban areas. However, the commercial viability of FEVs is at stake if the associated issues of autonomy are not dealt with effectively. Project EcoGem - Cooperative Advanced Driver Assistance System for Green Cars - advocates that the success and user acceptability of FEVs will predominantly depend on their electrical energy consumption rate and the corresponding degree of autonomy that they can offer. EcoGem aims at providing efficient ICT-based solutions to this great issue, by designing and developing a FEV-oriented highly-intelligent Advanced Driver Assistance System, equipped with suitable monitoring, learning, reasoning and management capabilities that will help increase the FEV's autonomy and energy efficiency.
