THE FUTURE OF E-VEHICLE INFRASTRUCTURE
"SWARCO TRAFFIC SYSTEMS is one of the lead-ing suppliers of system solutions for traffic control and offers comprehensive expertise in the area of e-vehicle charging stations. Our Parking and E-Mobility business unit offers customised integrated solutions for parking traffic control, parking space management and e-vehicle charging infrastructure. SWARCO`s wide range of solutions includes systems for vehicle and parking space detection, intelligent car-park routing systems, systems for managing on- and off-street parking spaces as well as e-vehicle charging connections, charging stations and battery exchange systems. In the greater metropolitan area of Stuttgart, SWARCO is currently helping establish an eco-nomical charging infrastructure for e-vehicles with its newly developed charging station model. Thus, SWARCO TRAFFIC SYSTEMS lays foundations for new business models within the "Living-Lab BWe mobil" project sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology. The EnBW utility company ordered several hundred stations for use in the eCar2Go project (Daimler AG), the smart grid research project iZEUS (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) and the pilot project for "Integrated Fleet Charging". "Our projects in Baden-Wuerttemberg break new ground for new business models in e-mobility", explains Uwe Hahner, General Manager of Parking and E-Mobility at SWARCO TRAFFIC SYSTEMS. The new transport concepts are technically based on the SWARCO charging station. This integrated system allows the economic operation of an e-vehicle infrastructure "right at the kerb"."
