SDV Telemetry Project - On Hold
Context: As an Idea from COVESA marketing team weekly meeting in-regards to the topic of increasing OEM participation in projects we discussed using EV-charging BoF as a topic area for creating use-cases and value propositoins that could be used to eventually create strong and engaging storyline content that helps inspire and onboard OEMs in the future.
Already things that pop to mind are
> vehicle info - trip data, make & model, battery data > health, time to 80% SoC, charge curve etc
> charge site info - environmental data from vehicle sensor (VSSo?) + user feedback +energy providers info
> charge point info – exact location of charger per vehicle (GPS/dead reckoning), occupancy, health, total charges, number kWh, avg charge duration, max power
ISO15118 > charging std needs to be considered for technical content also
We need to create a Business Value proposition for EV charging use-cases! "Techie 2 Becky" user experience can be mapped pretty well already as Ford presentation already details various pain points & myself and other EV drivers can flood this with numerous other issues I'm sure!
Major Questions that need to be tackled:
Q1: Can we really make EV charging “stress free” ? (through technology & standardization alone or do we need much more)
Q2: If Yes where and how do we achieve this, in the smart routing or better pump experience etc, fewer broken events etc?
Q3: Does RFid still matter if this becomes a reality? (this would be redundant once the vehicle can communicate directly with charge point providers)
Q4: Can we enable useful data for grid and energy suppliers from this effort?
Q5: What is our Vision for this BoF if PoC and project is a success ? - aka what is the north star concept (this is really critical for a clear marketing message and call to action)
Q6: Do Auto-makers(OEMs) really want EV charging to become non-differentiating?
Q7: Will Auto-makers(OEMs) allow remote control of vehicle functionality regarding EV charging?
Q8: Can making EV charging non-differentiating save Auto-makers(OEMs) cost?
Q9: Will we generate new revenue streams or better business from EV charging standardization?
Q10: Do Auto-makers (OEMs) want to centralize EV charging payments and operations? (Currently public EV charging is predominantly B2C, could it become B2B and even real-time in the future)
Q11: Where and how can we assist in the EV charging PoC stage, potential for hardware integration/abstraction?
