How to model electric car / electromobile?

Postby Bernd Welter » Wed Feb 28, 2018 3:55 pm

Hi there,

how can I model an electric car (aka electromobile)?
Are there sufficient profile parameters defined in xRoute?

Best regards,
Bernd

Here's some info from our DEV department:
As far as I know we do not have a proper model in the current xServer1 implementation.There have been some research projects dealing with this.

We already discussed this in the xServer 2 toll team how to approach this in the toll calculation of xServer2 and what vehicle parameters are needed then. Maybe there will be separated toll tarifs for Emobiles. California defines special lanes - so-called "high occupancy lanes" - that are free of cost for DECALs, which are available for vcertain e-mobiles (plug-in hybrids).

Besides this aspect an e-mobile is probably just a regular car profile with special speed values.
