Compared to conventionally powered vehicles, electric vehicles (EVs) have significantly shorter driving ranges due to the low energy density of their batteries. For EVs to experience a successful market launch, it is important to have a charging infrastructure in place that is widely accessible and easy to use. It is equally as important to have a standardized charging process. This article describes Smart Charging and its standardization in the ISO 15118 standard. With Smart Charging, in addition to a power connection, the vehicle also establishes a communication channel with the charging station. Today,Vector is already providing a first implementation based on its MICROSAR IP communication stack.
