Recently, the charging management for Electric Vehicles (EVs) on-the-move has become an emerging research problem in urban cities. Major technical challenges here involve intelligence for the selection of Charging Stations (CSs) to guide drivers’ charging plans, as well as the corresponding communication infrastructure for information dissemination between the power grid and EVs. In this article, a VehicularPublish/Subscribe (P/S) communication framework, in conjunction with Public Transportation Buses (PTBs) is provisioned to support on-the-move EV charging management. Benefiting from low privacy sensitivity, we propose a fully distributed charging management scheme concerning the driving intention. Results demonstrate a guidance for the provisioning of V-P/S communication framework, concerning EV drivers’ experience including charging waiting time and total trip duration. Also, the benefit of V-P/S communication framework is reflected in terms of the communication efficiency. Open research issues of this emerging research area are also presented.
