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 issues of (battery) autonomy are not dealt with in a sufficient manner. Project EcoGem - Cooperative Advanced Driver Assistance System for Green Cars - claims 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 is providing the efficient ICT-based solutions to this great issue, by having designed and developed a FEV-oriented highly-innovative Advanced Driver Assistance System, equipped with suitable monitoring, learning, reasoning and management capabilities that helps increasing the FEV's autonomy and energy efficiency.
