Main Project Information
Goal Make electric cars practical and affordable for your commute
Task Add your actual commute data to our database.
Where Global, anywhere on the planet
Description

You can help ChargeCar make electric vehicles more practical and affordable by sharing GPS data from your regular car trips. Contributing your commute data to ChargeCar helps us better understand the driving habits and needs of everyday commutes.

You do not need an electric car to contribute to our project. On our website you calculate the cost of commuting with an electric car using your actual commute data, compare the efficiency of gasoline and electric cars for your trips, browse commutes across the country or work on a smart controller for our programming contest.

How to Join

Participation involves collecting GPS data of your regular commute and uploading it to our online database. Visit http://chargecar.org/participate/how_to for full details on exactly what data you should collect and how to upload it to the site.
