Electric vehicles are gaining importance and help to reduce dependency on oil, increase energy efficiency of transportation, reduce carbon emissions and noise, and avoid tail pipe emissions. Because of short driving distances, high mileages, and intermediate waiting times, fossil-fuelled taxi vehicles are ideal candidates for being replaced by battery(More)
Probe vehicles equipped with GPS can be used to permanently collect traffic speed information for an entire road network, and the statistical mean value of link speeds collected over time is often used as an estimator for mid-term predictions. For road links with sparse probe vehicle data, the estimated mean may be too inaccurate due to the low sample size,(More)
Introducing E-Taxi fleets in urban areas poses a number of economic, organizational and technical challenges related to the nature of Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV). This paper discusses these challenges and demonstrates how existing mobility data can aid the underlying decision process to overcome them. We present an integrated approach developed for the(More)
This work aims to estimate changes in traffic characteristics of urban roads in dependence of adverse weather conditions like rain and snow. Investigated traffic characteristics are capacity and free flow speed which are elementary for describing the performance of traffic networks and setting up macroscopic traffic models. The methods are based on(More)
Kurzfassung: Zukünftige Stromnetze werden mit neuen Herausforderungen konfrontiert. Verantwortlich dafür sind zusätzliche Verbraucher wie Fahrzeuge aus dem Bereich der Elektromobilität. Anhand des Spezialfalls einer Taxiflotte, welcher sich durch hohe Konzentration an den Standplätzen sowie relativ hohe Tageskilometer auszeichnet, werden die Auswirkungen(More)
