Strange, there isn't a throng of people (some wearing newspaper hats) taking photographs of your bike. Are EVs quite common over there?
Also, I would be curious to see how you could talk to the battery using a can/usb adapter. Any idea if you can get other data from the bike? I.e. Speed, State Of Charge, and the Odometer. I was thinking about developing some kind of app that can do the following:
Based on how far you want to travel, and a table of data that maps your speed to your energy usage, calculate the maximum speed
that you can go.
The idea is that if you're going to approach the limit of your bike's range, you need to know just how fast you can go and still make the trip. So, if you enter 90 miles when the battery is at 100%, it's going to say "40 mph". If you ride more conservatively than expected (i.e. slower, or tucked behind the windshield) for some time, you could end up with more energy than expected, and it could say "45 mph".
Another example: you could enter 60 miles and the app would say "70 mph", but if you gunned it and went at 80 mph instead, the max speed would slowly drop. Ultimately, it might say "Start walking buddy!"
The idea is that as long as you see that max speed going up, you can be confident that you will be able to make the trip. You can even speed up a bit. If it's going down, then you had better slow down, or start planning on getting some juice.
It appears that the way that the Enertia works right now is that based on your SOC, it assumes a constant energy consumption and calculates a ranged based on that. That estimate is not all that accurate, as Gavin demonstrated
(Trip meter said 22 miles, SOC 50%, but Range was only 16 miles).
