By the way in which of selling its Supercharging community and the Navigate with Journey Planner function, Tesla revealed a really fascinating administration device for your complete charging community.
As we will see within the video, and the captured picture under, the corporate developed a really subtle resolution to current all its charging factors in North America (and most definitely additionally in different elements of the world).
By means of a coloration code, the operator can rapidly see which stations are working fantastic, and which of them are overloaded or damaged. All the pieces is in real-time.

A zoom-in and one click on on a specific charging station will open a further standing window with particulars associated to this specific location. Tesla can simply decide which stalls are defective, and what’s the wait time, and even create a report for service groups.
On the best aspect of the window, there’s a normal desk with stats about your complete community – what number of stations are occupied at greater than 50 %, lower than 50 %, or totally occupied. What are the wait occasions – lower than 10 minutes, 10-20 minutes, greater than 20 minutes? This final choice (greater than 20 minutes is related to a darkish pink coloration, indicating a foul consequence.

The map itself – if mixed with reviews based mostly on historical past – ought to permit us to fairly simply decide the weak spots within the community and immediate the choice so as to add extra stalls or a brand new station close by.
