EV Route Mapping with Physics models

Celadon Applications - About Us: "Road2TM is the world's first electric vehicle range calculator which relies on a physics simulator instead of approximations or other 'tricks'. This allows us to have much greater accuracy then other techniques. Our users can pick a route and calculate how much of a charge it will take to reach their destination, with everything from terrain to weather forecasts taken into account. Places to charge at are plotted along the route

A traditional electric vehicle charger map will show only electric vehicle-specific chargers. However, these chargers are few and far between. Rather than leaving our drivers stranded, we show them EV chargers, places that rent spaces with high power sockets (such as RV parks), places that commonly provide power to EV owners in emergencies (such as fire departments), et cetera."
