Connected Vehicle Data

Using telematics devices, cars can distribute data for many purposes for an end-user. Car data is created by electrical sensors linked to the ECU or Electronic Control Unit. An ECU is linked to an onboard telematics device which transmits live data. A user in a central location receives this data over the air, with an end interface that can be configured in a way that works for their business.Many attributes of a car can be transmitted live or at set intervals using GPS and mobile data networks.

Using car data, fleet management companies analyse their vehicles to help reduce costs, prevent maintenance issues and schedule service appointments in advance. Governments and councils can use car technical data to better manage traffic. Insurance companies can have real-world use cases for their customers and the introduction of smart cities with connected cars results in more efficient infrastructure. Most importantly, emergency services receive live vehicle data to accurately locate an accident, with automatic triggers to call ambulances if the vehicle senses it is in a severe accident.

What Is Charging Session Data?

Onboard control units both on the vehicle and the charge station measure charge session data. This data is combined to estimate charge time, power delivery from the charger, charging cost and much more.

Why Is Charging Session Data Important?

Charging session data is useful for customer experiences. Knowing what rate a user is charging can help them predict journey times, and inform them how much the charge session will cost and the rate of their charging.

When dealing with high currents and voltages, charging session data can be used to safely manage the charge station operation. Too much power on a hot day may cause malfunction, and too little power may indicate a fault.

Charging session data such as time spent charging, charge costs and energy used during each session can be used by fleet management organisations to monitor their users. Understanding these can assist with budgeting, average downtime and productivity for their fleet, and how often a vehicle is charged. Therefore, it helps fleet operators with maintenance schedules and monitoring battery conditions.
