Design of New-generation Electric Vehicle Terminal


EVT (electric vehicle terminal) has played an important role in EV (electric vehicle) operation. Based on research status of vehicle terminal, EVT brought about in the future should have the following functions: (1) fundamental functions, including real-time monitoring of batteries, guidance in station, position guidance of charging/battery-swap infrastructures, communication with OMS (operation and management system), and so on; (2) advanced functions, including but not limited to multi-media entertainment, subscribing and payment for charging/battery-swap, identification, and safety control during driving. Complete design of new-generation EVT in software structure and hardware architecture is proposed; a new idea of the application of EVT in EV industry is put forward.
