Agent Based Assistance for Electric Vehicles – An Evaluation


Even before car manufacturers start offering series-produced electric vehicles in a large scale, expectations in the electric powertrain are considerably high. Prospective business perspectives are additionally driven by the so called Vehicle-to-Grid technology, which allows electric vehicles to not only procure electric energy, but also to feed energy back into the grid network. However, by using Vehicle-to-Grid, energy literally degenerates into an article of merchandise and becomes of interest to several stakeholders. We have developed a multi-agent system, which embraces this exact view and maximises the interest of several stakeholders in using Vehicle-to-Grid capable electric vehicles. The purpose of this paper is to describe the evaluation of our assistance system and to present collected evaluation results.
