ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING RESEARCH

HELP SHAPE THE FUTURE OF ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING IN THE UK.

AS PART OF OUR ONGOING COMMITMENT TO DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE, ACCESSIBLE ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE, WE'RE KEEN TO HEAR FEEDBACK, VIEWS AND PERCEPTIONS OF ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING FROM A BROAD RANGE OF USERS. 

PROTOTYPE TRIAL

We are currently working on an IUK funded project with Urban Foresight to improve the accessibility of existing electric vehicle charging infrastructure for the elderly and people with disabilities.

To do so, we have developed 3 prototypes that we would like to test at a live trial on the 21st of September. The aim of the trial is to put the prototypes through their paces, the results will be used to develop the tools further and make sure that we’re meeting user needs, we are therefore looking for people with a range of abilities to trial the tools. 

 

About the Trial: The trial will involve using the charging cables that Electric Vehicles require to charge them. The prototypes are designed to help carry and use the cables. Electric cars and charge points will be on site to test the prototypes in a real world setting. The trial will be outdoors so please wear suitable clothing.

Date: September 21st 2021.

Time: 9.00am - 5.30pm - The trial should take between 1.00 - 1.30hrs to complete.
