PTV Navigator for Androidâ„¢ with eMobility Features

PTV_Navigator_Android_80x80pxNew special eMobility functions have been developed as part of the iZEUS ( research project and are currently being thoroughly tested and further developed in a fleet test. The eMobility features offer excellent range calculation and helpful assistance systems for electric vehicles.

The server-calculated range is displayed as a polygon, in order to show which ranges can really be achieved. At present, characteristic values such as battery charge status, temperature, heating/air conditioning and motor consumption are already taken into account.

With the use of assistants, current vehicle consumption values can be visualised and usage scenarios calculated in real time (for example, “How far would I get if I turned the air conditioning off?”). Charging stations along the route can easily be displayed and integrated into the route.

We are currently in the test phase with the eMobility features. We will let you know as soon as they are available as part of the PTV Navigator for Androidâ„¢. In the meantime, please contact our product manager for any product-related questions.
