The NeMo project had the opportunity to demonstrate its approach and outputs with regards to the Extended Vehicle and Neutral Server, at an event organised on 5 April 2019 at Centro Ricerche Fiat (CRF), the Research Center of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, in Orbassano, Italy. NeMo developed a specific architecture for the Extended Vehicle and Neutral Server, following the relevant ACEA and ISO work, deployed by CRF and Renault partners, with the collaboration of NeMo Associate Partner HONDA. Apart from the technical implementation, another very important aspect is the “double consent by the user” approach being followed.
Specifically, during the event, members of the ACEA Working Group 3: “ELECTRIC VEHICLE” and representatives of the European Commission had the opportunity to experience the demonstration of a real use case, where the driver consents (twice) to sharing data from their electric vehicle with an external service provider through the Neutral Server and the NeMo Hyper-Network. In this way, the driver experiences improved services, as the service provider has access to real vehicle data. It is worth to mention here that the demonstration drew the attention of the event participants as this was the first time they experienced a real implementation of the ACEA Working Group use cases.
