All across the world, the electrification of road vehicles is growing quickly. With electric vehicle sales shooting up, there is a greater need to develop a robust charging infrastructure. More than just installing charging points, the bigger challenge lies in managing a large fleet of devices dispersed across geographic locations. There are challenges in developing the electric vehicle ecosystem, including infrastructure management, addressing customer experience, profitability, maintenance, monitoring, energy management, and ultimately, how to create a universal ecosystem that works for everyone. Internet of Things technology is a promising player in bringing it all together. In this paper, through a specific case study, is pointed out the importance of IoT integration in the electric vehicle ecosystem, as one of the key management factors. By monitoring the charging network, it is possible to independently manage the power and its distribution and obtain real time reports on charging behavior and data on vehicle models. Internet of Things usage enables charge point operators to remotely monitor and manage operations and quickly resolve issues by presenting real-time insights into usage and device performance, including charger availability, fault monitoring, and troubleshooting – all of which help enormously when it comes to predictive maintenance and reducing downtime. In conclusion are identified the new benefits of Internet of Things integration of the electric vehicle infrastructure.
