MASIRI Project explores the Influence of Human Behavior on Mobility and Energy Use

Funding from the state of Schleswig-Holstein of around € 600,000 from AI funding guideline enables research in interdisciplinary project. Shared use of available energy by the mobility sector and the power grid is one of the largest foreseeable additional loads for our energy grids. Understanding human behavior in relation to electric vehicle use is therefore a research approach that brings multiple perspective benefits: peak loads could be bypassed in the long term, and charging scheduling could be automatically improved.

Researchers from the fields of psychology and computer science are now taking a step in this direction together in the MASIRI project: they are researching human behavior and processing this knowledge in the form of a multi-agent simulation, with the help of which intelligent resource allocation can be optimized.
