Case study for EV charging infrastructure application
7,96,000! This is the number of electric vehicles registered across India in the year 2021. The development in the automotive industry has increased the penetration of electric vehicles and thereby increased the demand for Electric Vehicle infrastructure. There are a few challenges for the EV drivers during their drive- finding an EV charging station. Ever found yourself stressed out at 10% of your vehicle battery?
To reduce the anxiety and ease out finding a charging station we have proposed a mobile application that helps in navigating to the nearest electric vehicle charging station. This article talks about the features of the EV charging infrastructure mobile application.
Finding a compatible charging station:
The format of the design forbids universal compatibility and makes it more difficult in navigating to the charging stations. DC chargers are mostly found across the large cities; however, Tesla superchargers are for the Tesla vehicles.
• Charging based on speed and battery capacity:
Varied requirements from the user also vary and finding a station that matches your requirements such as charging rate, battery capacity, and charging time can be a challenge.
• Finding the charging point status:
Unavailability of the charging points after reaching the charging station could add to your stress.
To design an app based platform that lets user join and participate in educational courses with hundreds of video content
Developed our product through the following five phases: Research, Synthesize, Ideate, UI Design & Test.
User pain points
High level design goals
Key features & motivations
Iteration & implementation
How we made it?
After creating the design system, we began designing the user interface by keeping the digital wireframes as a reference.
Before reaching the station
The application makes use of the driver’s location and guides to the nearest compatible charging station. Integrating with the geolocation, the application enables the driver to get the driving directions to the station, easier and traffic routes to reach the station.
The application lets you charge based on time, battery charge, or amount. If you choose to charge based on the energy demand, you can opt for it. Or you might choose to charge for a particular amount or the time you spend on the charging session. The flexibility feature of the application helps you eliminate the occurrences of charging during peak times which is usually before 10 am or after 4 pm.
Controlling the charging sessions remotely
Push notifications are another features that alert you when the battery level reaches 80% and 100% so that you can sit and relax while it’s charging.
