Due to a sudden spike in electric vehicle utilization on university campuses, the objective of this project is to determine where to place EV charging stations in the most optimal locations and to support a mobile application that will be used as a guide to help commuters. Research on walkability and campuses that have implemented EV charging stations will help determine optimal locations. Using the cognitive map of campus in a survey will help show what building and what parking are the most frequented on the campus. Students and faculty will be asked to show how they travel to and from the building to the parking lot. The data from the survey will help determine what locations on campus have high amounts of foot traffic. This project is a part of a larger team effort to inform a mobile application where EV charging stations are located on campus. The purpose of this project is to help place these charging stations in the most efficient way possible on campus.
