A new European Research Project has been launched in May 2011. OpEneR, which stands for "Optimal Energy consumption and Recovery based on a system network," will develop new driving strategies and driver assistance systems that significantly increase the efficiency, driving range, and safety of electric vehicles. This is to be achieved by merging data from on-board and off-board sources. A particular focus will lie on an optimal cooperation between the electric drivetrain and the regenerative braking system, supported by data from radar, video, satellite navigation, car-to-infrastructure and car-to-car systems.
