Calif. PHEV trial uses Gridpoint data-logging

  • 15-Feb-2010 02:37 EST

The California Department of General Services (DGS) has selected Gridpoint Inc.'s data-logging solution for a two-year trial of plug-in hybrid-electric vehicles. The Gridpoint solution will be used by the DGS to capture performance data from 50 converted Toyota Prius models used in the state fleet.

The trial, with vehicles to be operated from San Diego to Sacramento, is expected to generate a broad range of data because of the diversity in terrain, climate, and driver behavior. The data will be shared with other state agencies, including the California Air Resources Board, and used by DGS for decisions regarding the makeup of its fleet of more than 50,000 vehicles.

Gridpoint’s data-logging solution automatically captures and securely uploads performance data from electric vehicles and the charging infrastructure. The data is aggregated, analyzed, and presented in an intuitive Web-based interface. Performance reports enable real-time understanding of fuel economy, carbon emissions, travel distance, charging location, charging duration, etc.
