-Create a civilian’s Tesla driving experience

Ⅰ.summary

By the end of 2019, the number of electric bicycles in China has reached 300 million, becoming an indispensable transport in the lives of the general public. However, the original dashboard is very simple, and the only information provided is electricity, speed and steering, which can no longer meet the requirements of people pursuing quality of life in the information explosion era.

In this paper, we develop a powerful display and control terminal for electric bicycles. The program uses STONE-STVC070WT HMI screen as the display control platform, and based on the C8051F340 chip developed a set of data acquisition, processing terminal, integrated a variety of sensor technology, to create not only can provide speed, power, steering information, and additional RTC clock, heading, environmental temperature, mileage data and other information, the user through the touch screen to complete the Driving mode and personalized lighting settings, and the ability to automatically turn on the lighting system and other functions.

Let your car has the same as the Tesla, full of technology display control terminal.

Ⅱ.The realization of the function

Let’s show you our powerful feature list.

1. speed display function, display the vehicle speed from 0-100Km (basically will not be achieved), the display is familiar and like the car dashboard, and with numbers intuitive and simple.

2.Power display function, not simply mapping out inaccurate power information according to the battery voltage, but through the lithium battery discharge curve to calculate the real energy storage data, which is clearly shown to you through the battery icon and percentage data.

3.Turning information function, receives the user’s steering control information, on the one hand, gives the steering tips on the display, on the other hand, drives the 5050 RGB light set, completes the personalized turn signal drive work.

4.RTC clock function, which provides accurate clock display function for your car, eliminating the trouble of looking at your cell phone or watch while riding your bike, and also provides the safety factor for your driving.

As a lady and program ape, you may have already got used to the city life, and gradually lost the sensitivity to the direction, the program in this article will provide you with real-time direction guide, refuse to find the embarrassment of the north.

6. Ambient temperature function, to provide you with 2 ℃ within the accuracy of the ambient temperature information, combined with the human body in the course of travel, timely addition of clothing.

7. A variety of mileage data functions, providing cumulative mileage, single driving mileage, battery remaining mileage data, you know your riding data like the back of your hand, but also to avoid getting yourself into the embarrassment of a dead trolley.

8. Driving mode settings, through the HMI touch screen, the user can set the cruise mode, sport mode, energy-saving mode, let you feel more than 300,000 B-class car mode experience.

9. personalized lighting settings, also via the HMI touchscreen, where you can select your preferred lighting and turn light modes.

Ⅲ.System principle and composition

The system mainly consists of two parts, the front-end display and control platform and the back-end data acquisition and processing platform, the specific realization principle is as follows.

STONE HMI screen as a display control platform, receive various types of information sent from the back-end data acquisition and processing platform, and its display on the screen through a variety of controls, and at the same time on the user’s touch operation feedback, give the corresponding instructions sent to the back-end data acquisition and processing platform.

The back-end data acquisition and processing platform communicates with the front-end platform and EV control box through the UART port of C8051F340 chip; uses the IIC interface and UART port to communicate with the on-board RTC clock module and DMC digital compass module to obtain the current time and heading information; reads the battery voltage through the ADC peripheral of the chip, calculates the electricity information through the discharge curve table, reads the battery voltage, and then reads the battery voltage through the DMC digital compass module. Analog voltage for speed, calculate the current speed and integrate the mileage data; the chip reads the steering key information; and through the chip’s own temperature sensor, obtains the current chip temperature information. The photoresistor is collected and the lighting is automatically turned on according to the threshold value.

Back-end system components: MCU, photosensitive module, RTC module, DMC compass module, 5050RGB module, battery level and speed acquisition module, communication module.
