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.
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.
