This paper presents the primary objective of a research project which aims at enhancing the world of e-mobility by highlighting the continuous evolution and demand of the Electric Vehicle (EV) in modern cities and the consequent need for more and more innovative charging systems. Here we focused on a current and incoming EV drawback, namely the variety of EV charging methods which are currently available in the market. An adaptive solution, which is suitable for both domestic and working environments, is presented, where single-phase recharging points are applied with non-high power. The task is to provide a user-friendly support for any end-user who wants to acquaintance with the EV world. Three stages are characterizing this approach: (1) the search for new solutions for the charging of electric vehicles, (2) the finalization and achievement of the proof of concept and product, (3) a set of functional tests (i.e. the validation). The proposed product is preserved from electric blackout during the EV recharging phase within a typical daily life domestic activity: this result is achieved through a combination of smart devices, an intelligent framework and the charging point. An optimized calculation program supervises this architecture and it allows the real-time interaction and communication between all the components by carrying out a dynamic control of the loads.
