Abstract: In addition to the reduction of charging times, the optimization of the charging process and its integration into the primary vehicle use is a central approach to minimize the loss of comfort for the user. In a first step, design-critical vehicle users were identified and modelled in typical user scenarios. Then, on this basis and taking into account an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of fast-charging technology currently available on the market, the requirements definition for the development of a system for "user-friendly support in the planning of a transport task for EVs" is carried out. The focus will be on the development of a multi input device operating system that is based on a different degree of connec-tivity and automation depending on the different user types. The focus of the evaluation lies in the discussion of the correlation between the degree of connec-tivity and automation and the user types. Systematically derived operating con-cepts are evaluated in the context of subject studies.
