Data Logging Overview
We are automatically collecting data from EVs as well as from charging stations.
All trial EVs are equipped with black boxes that store sensor data and transmit it via the GSM network. Recorded/transmitted sensor data includes the vehicle's GPS position, charge status, current, voltage, and activation of heater/ air-conditioner/ head lights.
All EV fast-charging stations transmit usage data via the GSM network in order to reliably produce energy consumption data. Recorded/transmitted data includes the starting and termination time of a charging event, as well as the amount of energy used.
