Since 2019, The EV Market has taken great strides and is set to transform the automotive industry. Automotive OEMs have increased spend on R&D on electric models and sustainable technology.
Governments have introduced regulations and incentives to accelerate the shift to electric vehicles. Europe spearheaded this development, where EV adoption reached 8 percent due to policy mandates such as stricter emissions targets for OEMs and generous subsidies for consumers. Consumer attitude and increase awareness has led to a greater adoption of Electric Vehicles.
A Deloitte report suggests that the global EV markets is to grow with a CAGR of 29 per cent achieved over the next ten years: Total EV sales growing from 2.5 million in 2020 to 11.2 million in 2025, then reaching 31.1 million by 2030.
Benefits of Telematics for Electric Vehicles
Successful EV Management with Telematics
Telematics Hardware for Electric Vehicles
To connect to the electric vehicles, you can utilise a Telematics Control Unit or a gateway. Integrated with 3 CAN Ports and wireless technologies such as 4G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, a powerful telematics control unit is what can enable intelligence on an electric vehicle.
The provision for 3 CAN Ports makes the telematics control unit an ideal fit for electric vehicles. Different CAN ports can be connected to the different terminals within the EV Backbone to tap different data points on different CAN buses.
Unlike conventional vehicles, EVs do not follow mandatory telematics data standards, making data access a challenge. Hence, the LINUX powered telematics control unit provides the software flexibility and transparency to be compatible with different makes and models of electric vehicles.
The wireless technologies provide the capability to power different uses cases such as SMS alerts and notifications to the drivers and fleet owners. Wi-Fi can help in firmware update of the ECU and vehicle electronics when connected to your home networks and lay the foundation for the ever evolving use cases.
EVs have unique metrics that need to be monitored to optimize their performance, range and return on investment, making telematics a must for electric vehicles.
