Electro-mobility

CAN data-logger in the Allgäu

The project "e-Deliveries in the Allgäu" wants to promote and advance electro-mobility in the Allgäu region. STW (Germany) supports the project with a CAN data-logger.

THE PROJECT COLECTS CONCEPTS, IDEAS, and activities through bringing together companies and institutions that actively promote and advance electro-mobility in the Allgäu region, a mountainous area in the south of Germany. It is one of many projects under the "e-Mobility Allgäu” label. Project goals, amongst others, are to gain expertise in e-mobility and the development of the regional networks and partnerships. The project is supposed to explore and realize possible applications for e-mobility, especially for tourism purposes in the area.

Kempten University of Applied Sciences launched the electro-mobility project under the banner "e-Deliveries in the Allgäu", together with partners ABT Sportsline, Deutsche Post, and Sensor-Technik Wiedemann (STW). Within the scope of this project, around 40 e-Caddys will be built by ABT for commercial delivery services in the Allgäu. In cooperation with partner Deutsche Post, and with the assistance of information and communication technologies, the vehicles will be used for courier and express package services, as well as usual delivery services.

The goal of the project is to gather data for the optimization of electro-mobility. At the core of the data analysis is a CAN data-logger developed by STW with the Linux operating system, which, with an additional software package developed at the Kempten University of Applied Sciences, records vehicle electronics data and location data. Vehicle-relevant data, which are of great interest for all project participants, will be temporarily stored in the vehicle and then transmitted via mobile telephony to an internet server. The data remains available on the server for further analysis.

The "e-Deliveries in the Allgäu" project is supported by the German Federal Government, the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology and the Saxon State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labour and Transport.
