Open Vehicle Monitoring System on Board

Team Electric Blue has the Open Vehicle Monitoring System ( OVMS ) on board.

Tesla Motors has made all car data available on its CAN-bus. An app e.g. for the iPad, iPhone or any Android phone can make the data visible at any time by contacting the OVMS server. Using GSM, the car delivers the data to the server.

The data-stream covers information such as:

  • battery status ( percentage )
  • remaining range
  • temperatures ( PEM, motor, battery )
  • car location ( using google maps )
  • charging points ( e.g. directions, locations, addresses, plug types )
  • and much more
