OVMS for the Smart ED

I have been posting on one of the other threads about building a custom kit to connect to our Smart ED's ODBII port for remotely monitoring our battery, along with monitoring many more things. This kit is being discussed on the German forum site, http://www.goingelectric.de and the primary developers are forum members Erich and Bumaus. It looks like a very versatile and potential powerful kit, however it currently requires building the kit ourselves.

At the same time, the Open Vehicle Monitoring System (OVMS) initiative has just added support for our Smart ED in the last month.

Here's a full description of the OVMS platform:
https://github.com/openvehicles/Open...oring-System-3

Their kits are pre-assembled and available for purchase here:

Complete list of web links from one of the head guys at OVMS:

Right now, I plan on purchasing a Wifi-only OVMS kit and seeing if that fits my needs. I will post updates here.


Inventory list needed for this project:


Choose one of the next 2 modules

OVMS 3.1 Base Module (Wifi/Bluetooth only):

Here are some screenshot from developer Martin's cell phone where he is accessing data via the web from his OVMS unit installed in his Smart ED:

My unit is supposed to ship early this week. Once I get it installed and up and running, I will definitely post updates here.

Does anyone know if you could activate the preconditioning from the app? That is pretty much the main reason I would do it.

In talking with Martin, not yet, but it's high on his priority list.

I've got one of these OVMS units and an evilution site subscriber called Fran (who knows what he's doing) has got it working on the 451 ED.
Once I get mine working and on the website, hopefully other people will be able to chip in and help the project.
