The "e-Deliveries in the Allgäu" project is one of the many projects under the "e-Mobility Allgäu” label. This collects concepts, ideas and activities and brings together companies and institutions that actively promote and advance electromobility in the Allgäu region. Project goals, amongst others, are to gain expertise in e-mobility and the development of the regional networks and partnerships.
Under the banner "e-Deliveries in the Allgäu", a future-orientated electromobility project was launched by Kempten University of Applied Sciences, together with partners ABT Sportsline, Deutsche Post and Sensor-Technik Wiedemann (STW). Within the scope of this project, around 40 e-Caddys will be built by Abt for commercial delivery services in the Allgäu. In cooperation with the partner Deutsche Post, and with the assistance of information and communication technologies, the vehicles will be used for courier and express package services, as well as standard delivery services.
The goal of the project is to gather data for the optimisation of electro-mobility. At the core of the data analysis is a CAN data logger developed by STW with the Linux operating system, which, with an additional software package developed at the Kempten University of Applied Sciences, records vehicle electronics data and location data. Vehicle-relevant data, which are of great interest for all project participants during the entire project phase, will be temporarily stored in the vehicle and then transmitted via mobile telephony to an internet server. The data will remain available on the server for further analysis.
The "e-Deliveries in the Allgäu" project is supported by the German Federal Government, the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology and the Saxon State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labour and Transport.
