Resumen:
Un centro de I+D italiano está desarrollando un nuevo modelo de organización y gestión para un servicio de carga móvil de vehículos eléctricos (VE) con menos infraestructuras. Los datos de la geolocalización del vehículo eléctrico y de la monitorización remota del nivel de carga se utilizan para programar el repostaje de uno o más vehículos eléctricos mediante unidades de carga móviles que son suministradas al lugar en el que están aparcados los vehículos a repostar. Además la novedad del servicio reside en una unidad de carga compacta para los vehículos eléctricos. El centro de investigación busca socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica e investigación.

Tittle:
An innovative more efficient mobile-charging cargo logistic model for the recharging of electric vehicles
Summary:
An Italian R-Y-D center is developing a new organization and management model for an infrastructure-less mobile charging service for electric vehicles (EV). The solution involves an optimal logistic model, focused on the efficient delivery of the charging units through a "cargo" delivery EV. In addition, the innovation of the service concerns a compact charging unit for EVs. The Italian R-Y-D center is looking for cooperations under technical cooperation and research agreements.
Description:
This Italian R-Y-D center is an association that aims to promote, coordinate, integrate research and disseminate scientific and technological knowledge involving institutions, companies, universities, researchers, schools and anyone who shares the ideal of universality of culture. In collaboration with an Italian municipality and within the framework of a local development project, they have implemented a project for the development of a center engaged in scientific activities. This collaborative space aims to develop innovative ideas and projects, exploiting participation mechanisms coordinated by the municipality and in concert with the universities, institutions and research associations involved. Their activity focuses on: extensive use of innovative information technologies; matching between the technology and hystory, traditions and social context; attention paid to citizens, as producers and users of such content.

They are developing an innovative infrastructure-less organization and management logistic model for electric vehicles that is focused on electric vehicle mobile cargo charger. The model involves both aspects of product and process innovation. Within the proposed model, the data from the geolocation of the electric vehicle and from the telemonitoring of the charge level of the electric vehicle are used to program the refueling of one or more electric vehicles through mobile charging units that are delivered into the place where the vehicles to be refuelled are parked. In order to plan the refueling of electric vehicles, preferably the most suitable stopping times for recharging are used.

The vehicle is recharged in a scheduled way through the detection of a minimum level of charge level but the system does not exclude the possibility that the recharge occurs at the request of the driver via smartphone. In both cases, the driver confirms his availability to park the vehicle for the duration of the recharge. The service is implemented through an electric service vehicle that carries the mobile charging unit in situ, which must remain in place of the electric vehicle parked for the entire recharge time, and then be withdrawn from the service vehicle when the charging is complete. The transport of mobile charging units is programmed on the basis of an optimization algorithm able to maximize the number of refills that the service vehicle can perform on the same route, guaranteeing pre-established intervention times.

With regard to identifiable product innovation in the implementation of the service, the system provides for the adoption of mobile charging units of suitable power and specially designed to minimize the space to be used during the operation of charging the electric vehicle.

They look for cooperation partners for the development of mobile charging units. They look also for international partner in order to define characteristics, dimensioning of the flow/ dimensions of one or more electric vehicles, even already present on the market, for the transport of mobile charging units. The collaborations will be carried out under research and technical cooperation agreements.
Advantages and Innovations:
The very first trials of mobile EV charging services are being launched in Europe. None of these initiatives has optimization features related to the implemented logistics model, nor has it envisaged the design and adoption of small-size recharging solutions.

Within the innovative logistic model, the optimal routing of the service vehicle, with characteristics of optimal sharing of resources in the planning of deliveries, is achieved. The optimization allows to perform multiple refuellings on the same route, for more EVs charged in parallel. The currently existing solutions do not provide for the release in situ of the mobile charging unit, but require the presence of the service vehicle next to the vehicle to be recharged for the duration of the operation. Moreover, the recharge can only take place sequentially, mainly because the service vehicle can perform one refill at a time and the operation requires an adequate space.

The recharge solution proposed does not require a special availability of space, thus allowing to limit the impact of the recharge operation on traffic conditions in roads, parking areas and small spaces . The charging unit can be released on-site without requiring the stationarity of the service EV during charging and it has an universal mechanical joining, that allows to firmly hold the charger on the body or wheels of the electric vehicle during the refuelling. The solution has an anti-theft system both for charger and electic vehicles power plug. A quick-release mechanism enables to detach the charger from car body (most useful in emergency).
The solution offers significant socio-economic advantages such as: valuable support to e-mobility by fighting "range anxiety"; contrast to marginalization of the areas where the charging infrastructure will be not widespread; easy integration of the mobile-charging logistic model with renewable energy harvesting system.
