Abstract

Complex interactions of cyber-physical systems, which are necessary to implement high-level functionality, should stay invisible to the outside world and to the user. However, there are times where an intuitive presentation of the inner workings of such systems might positively influence the acceptance of new technologies and sustainable business models. This is especially the case with the so-called green cyberphysical systems, based upon renewable energies, intelligent energy management and new mobility paradigms. In this work, an integrated approach to communicating the benefits of such systems was deployed in our demonstrator, the Innotruck. The vehicle can act as a micro-smart-grid, with the ability to buy, sell, consume, store and produce electric energy on the internal (partly virtual) or external (real) energy market. With its recharge stations it also serves as a support truck for other plug-in hybrid or pure electric vehicles. These use-cases are handled through a series of interconnected presentation concepts, allowing an insight into the technical systems with varying degrees of complexity. With our work, we have shown how the benefits of electric mobility, augmented by smart grids, can be communicated to broader public.
