This paper presents a
new support concept to electric car owners for better services, based on an idea
of utilizing cloud computing, artificial intelligence and real-time condition
monitoring. In base principle, the implementation of the concept will be based
on distributed data collection and data sharing in order to support electric
car services by giving access to the data, which is collected from the cars and
offered by a car manufacturer. The reason for focusing on electric cars is that
for them the industry standards have still not been set, and from emissions point
of view, the electric cars can achieve lower total output of greenhouse gases,
than combustion engine-based cars would. By supporting the long life and easier
maintenance service offering growth, we can support the effort to mitigate the
climate change. However, currently the challenge is that the new electric car
manufacturers do not have wide service networks. This is a real barrier for
them to enter to market and to take part in the competition. The main idea is
to create a concept in where manufacturers could use the cars on the road to
generate the information, which the independent car service companies would need
in order to offer maintenance service for these new car models. In this manner,
the new electric cars maintenance data access costs would be actually lower for
the maintenance service providers, than what it is nowadays per brand for the
well-established traditional brands. For customer, this can lower life-cycle
service costs and improve safety.
