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 EV Charging Data?

As we evolve to the widespread adoption of Electric Vehicles, the understanding of how vehicles charge in different situations is vital.

As charging data can be used to enhance customer experiences, help with vehicle safety, and make the charging process more efficient for an improved charge time. Charging data has many factors including the rate of charge from the charger itself, battery level, voltage, current flow, temperature, charging time and much more. All of this Charging data can be sent over the air using cloud services. Becoming accessible to charge station manufacturers, car makers and central fleet managers to monitor charging data.

Use Cases

Charging an EV battery has many elements. Vehicle Charge companies can analyse charging data such as external temperatures to see how this affects the amount of current that charges batteries. They can also use charging data to display how long the vehicle will take to charge, its battery percentage, temperature, cooling status, length of time charging and much more. Combining the right data can identify where users may become frustrated with the charging process.

Charging data such as time taken to charge, errors they face when dealing with a faulty charger and the state of the battery when they begin charging. All of this data is useful when improving customer experiences.

Also, authorities and electricity grid companies can identify demand in the charger location, peak power deliveries and any faults with the charger using charging data. These are all ideal for managing a fleet of EVs and their associated chargers. Ensuring they operate for as long as possible.
