Next-generation of intelligent electric vehicle charging stations change the future of EV charging.
UC Berkeley Professor and CITRIS PI Scott Moura and the eCAL research team have partnered with the UC Berkeley Department of Parking and Transportation to launch the Smart Learning Pilot for Electric Vehicles (SlrpEV). SlrpEV is an electric vehicle charging station that intelligently manages electric power and parking through machine learning.
Eight SlrpEV chargers are available for use by UC Berkeley parking permit holders in the Recreation and Sports Facility (RSF) parking garage at 2301 Bancroft Way. In order to use the SlrpEV chargers, users must request access. Once access has been requested, users will receive an invitation to log in and set up an account within a few business days.
SlrpEV chargers use cutting-edge machine learning and behavioral economics models to understand, predict, and efficiently manage electric power and parking. The eCAL team is building an EV charging service that incorporates the real-time nuances of charging needs that pushes toward a clean energy future.
The price of the SlrpEV chargers is randomized, as part of the research on user behavior and charging preferences. Details are found on the consent form when requesting access. That said, the randomized SlrpEV prices are less than $1.50 USD/hour, which is the price at similar public EV chargers near the UC Berkeley campus.
We welcome you to use SlrpEV, support UC Berkeley research, and enjoy clean and intelligent workplace charging.
The Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) and the Banatao Institute drive interdisciplinary innovation for social good with faculty researchers and students from four University of California campuses – Berkeley, Davis, Merced, and Santa Cruz – along with public and private partners.
