If you want to learn about your Renault ZOE electric vehicle, you’ve come to a good starting point. We will supply you with an app that displays driving stats and lots of interesting information about your car. All you need is a Bluetooth OBDII dongle or a super fast do-it-yourself build CanSee dongle, and an Android device. For a more detailed description of the app see the about or the screenshot page. There is a sister project for Apple iOS.
Things have been slow as vacation progressed. And of course now work is competing. But that doesn’t mean things have halted. A new release is in the making, though it mainly fixes language and edge case stability issues. No new functionality.
Growth has slowed down but is still going on quite nicely: 2.4% in the last 30 days and we’re now at about 5300 active Android devices
ANR’s are virtually zero (one user impacted)
Crashes are down to a record low 0.15%, less than one per day. This is half of the peer median. And half of those are Bluetooth related.
Renault changed it’s API totally for the complimentary MY Renault app. Muscat did some reverse engineering and I implemented that in Node-RED. Please note there is zero error checking. The bottom two rows are examples that can be fed the same message as the Get battery status node.
I’ve been busy recoding the interface between my home automation and ZE services as Renault changed their entire apps and API to “MY Renault”. That worked out with the kind help provided by James. All back on track again in Node-RED.
While doing some research I ran into a post from one of the developers on the French forum. This was one of the things he mentioned that has always been “somewhat known”, but more precisely formulated now.
Start of charge
During charging, every 30 minutes (every 15min for Z.E. 40)
End of charge
Beginning of a journey
During the trip, every 30 minutes (every 15min for Z.E. 40) or every 5% of SOC (state of charge of the battery)
End of a trip
Before sleep (3 min after lockout) if the battery value has changed since the last message
Before sleep (3 min after lockout) if the car is not connected, a charge is programmed and the charge level is less than 100%
In the last 14 days almost 50% of all crashes came from one single user on Android 8.1 and Cubot J3 hardware. If you are that user, could you please leave a reply? We’d love to figure out what’s going on!
