Harman and German Utility Company RWE Demonstrate Intelligent Charging for Electric Cars

The two companies launch a number of innovations at the 80th Geneva Motor Show, using two electric cars, a Micro Vett 500 and a Tesla Roadster, demonstrating for the first time solutions for intelligently linking charging infrastructure and electric cars and online access to locations with available charging stations that can be transmitted to the navigation system with ease. Convenient and highly efficient “plug & charge” capability thanks to the charging cable
Together Harman International and RWE will show the many and varied functions of an intelligent charging structure using a charging cable on the “Micro Vett E500” electric car. Audio and video data or personal data from the home or office can be accessed quickly and easily using the infotainment system while the car is connected to the energy network. Likewise, passengers can surf the Internet using broadband access or tune into the Internet radio station of their choice. All the data required is available at immensely high speeds.
This convenient, extremely efficient “plug & charge” capability is enabled by a simple cable, whose power line is used to establish communication by means of a highly secure protocol between the Infotainment system and the charging station. The secure connection is established through the charging cable immediately the car docks with the charging station, and the contract partner is automatically identified using unique authentication techniques. The driver can view the information about the charging station, the amount of energy charged and the meter reading, as well as his contract and meter number on the infotainment system display. The display also offers a number of other control functions for the intelligent energy network.
