Abstract

An architecture for enabling the internet connection of a fleet of electric vehicles is presented in the paper. The connection is based on the on-board integration of an Arduino platform with the CAN-bus communication network of the vehicle powertrain. The system allows a plurality of networking interface: GPRS, LAN, Wi-fi for the present and Wi-Max, LTE for the future. The proposed system manages the main powertrain parameters and warning/fault condition. Local and remote data storage is possible, such as direct web interface of the vehicle powertrain. Data post processing from the remote server allows the implementation of an automatic diagnostic procedure for the detection of incipient faults in the powertrain.
