A Study on Driving Monitoring and Service Platform for Electric Vehicles by Integrating the Technology of 3G and GPS(整合3G, GPS之電動車監控與服務平台研究)
- An electric vehicle is often equipped with a data recorder while being tested on the field to capture the data that later are used for analysis and identification of any anomaly or malfunction. Should any anomaly of a vital component occur without the test driver knowing it and aborting the test, it may increase the risk of unwanted accident. The test team may join the test on board to monitor the status at real time and minimize the possibility of accident, and the risk of driving nonetheless exists. To monitor the real-time conditions of the vehicle and keep the test team out of the harm’s way, the study proposed a driving monitoring and service platform for electric vehicles by integrating the technology of 3G, and GPS. The platform consists of the on-board computer and the monitoring and service center; the former is in charge of capturing the data of GPS signals, vehicle malfunctions, battery banks and power system while transmitting the captured data back to the monitoring and service center, and the latter performs the recording of test data mentioned above and show the remote vehicle status including the driving location, battery banks, power system, and vehicle malfunctions. According to the experimental results, the proposed system can help the test team to understand the remote vehicle status. Therefore this system can decrease risk of unwanted accident and is proven to be of great value for vehicle tests.
