Chevrolet BOLT/Opel Ampera E implementation

Hello Team. Do you plan to implement this car support for climate control?
Car can have remote climate launch, but only from application (not work outside the USA) or car key (near distance).

We don't currently have

We don't currently have anyone working on BOLT support.

We are an open source, volunteer based, project. To implement support we need a developer with access to the vehicle and reverse engineering tools / information.

I have recently discovered

I have recently discovered OVMS via the open energy monitoring website and would love to participate in development for the Bolt. I currently have a 2019 Chevy Bolt and I am also an Automotive Technician with 20 years experience with specialization in automotive electrical systems and networks. Hopefully I can be of help. I have submitted for the mailing list and I am currently researching on where to get started and what hardware to buy. I currently have a picoscope and several j2534 devices for can bus debuging as well as access to vehicle wiring diagrams oem service information. I also have experience programming arduino and pic microcontrollers " it's been awhile since I've used the pic micro though"

Any progress for Bolt integration?

Hi Chris15t,

Wondering if you had any luck with the Bolt and OVMS. I'm not a developer but happy to help hacking if there is a starting point. Sounds like you've got a lot of the tools that would make this do-able. Let me know if you have any progress or if there is a way I can support. 

Thanks!

CJ

Chevrolet BOLT/Opel Ampera E implementation

I also drive a Chevy Bolt, ordered an OVMS with the intention of at least implementing insight to the Bolt EV data as a testbed to help improve the ABRP script.  I've previously implemented ELM327-based PID pollers in other devices for the Bolt using the PID list courtesy of Sean Graham, and then for some parameters I think I can incoporate data from OpenDBC.

Are the "vehicle_obdii" and "vehicle_dbc" meant as templates to be copied and drawn from for implementation?

The vehicle_obdii can be used

The vehicle_obdii can be used as a template for polling style vehicles. The vehicle_dbc is a work-in-progress as we don't have full DBC support yet - it shouldn't be used at the moment.

Regards, Mark.

Thanks Mark! I'll start from

Thanks Mark! I'll start from the OBD template since I have the pollable PIDs from previous implementations, simplest way to get something working I suspect.

Any progress for Bolt integration?

Hi, 

I just discovered OVMS and am very excited to use it! I have a 2019 Bolt and found this thread and wondering if anyone (Chris or Jason, in particular) has had success in integrating the Bolt. I am not a developer but am an avid hacker and would be happy to support in testing or feedback. 

Looking forward to hearing more. 

Cheers,

Chris

Not yet

I haven't had a chance to work on it yet, my wife actually claimed the OVMS for her Leaf since the remote control doesn't work at all, so I've spent what time I've had over the holidays working on the ABRP script a little to learn it, and then have some more work to do there.

I just got a 2017 bolt (on hold due to recall).  Unfortunatly, my skills are more arduino level than what you likely need from me.  Can I still contribute to getting the bolt supported by OVMS?

Definitely! I have too many

Definitely! I have too many irons in the fire and haven't gotten around to implementing the Bolt in OVMS yet.  Honestly, if you're good with Arduino stuff you'll probably have no issues with the OVMS code, as it's C++ as well for the core vehicle components.

Honestly, it should be pretty simple, just need to copy the work from a similar vehicle (which uses active PID polling) like maybe the Ioniq:
https://github.com/openvehicles/Open-Vehicle-Monitoring-System-3/blob/master/vehicle/OVMS.V3/components/vehicle_hyundai_ioniqvfl/src/vehicle_hyundai_ioniqvfl.cpp

And then change it over to the Bolt PIDs:
https://allev.info/boltpids/

I've done this before for the ABRP AutoPi script, so let me know if you need any help.

Well my work from home job

Well my work from home job has an outage today so I'll throw the extra time into this.  Be aware I dont actually have the bolt in my posession yet, nor do I have an OVMS yet, so for the moment, any code I bodge together will have to be tested by someone else.

Please help me getting started implementing bolt/ampera-e suppor

Hi Jason,

I'm stuck at building support for my ampera-e and would kindly ask you to help me getting started.
I listened to your advice and used the ionic template as a starting point but I cannot get any data back from the car.
Currently i'm using modified template of the ampera/volt for my car but would like to have all data coming into ovms.
My attempt so far can  be found here: https://github.com/Edwintenhaaf/Open-Vehicle-Monitoring-System-3/tree/bolt-amperae-support/vehicle/OVMS.V3/components/vehicle_boltamperae

Thanks in advance,

Edwin

 

amperae
I register as a test user

Hello All,

Currently driving a Opel Ampera-E (model 2018) and got myself a ovms kit.
I'm not a developer but a systems engineer but eager to learn some new skills.

Any advice is welcome on how to start with determing the right pids for my car.
Just select generic odb2 and 'snif' data. Like wireshark or......

I have seen the post of @Jason_ABRP above and will try to get things started.

Chevrolet BOLT/Opel Ampera E implementation

A better template for OBD/UDS polling type vehicles now is probably my Hyundai Ioniq vFL implementation:

https://github.com/openvehicles/Open-Vehicle-Monitoring-System-3/tree/master/vehicle/OVMS.V3/components/vehicle_hyundai_ioniqvfl/src

It uses the current response assembly recommendation, the poll state ticker and shows how to add the battery cell monitor.

Michael

Bolt / Ampera-E work in progress

Hello All,

Little update on Bolt / Ampera-e support

I have been working on support for the ampera-e and bolt with the help from users in this thread and the mailing list.
Made a first step using the ioniqvfl template as advised. Nothing works but it compiled and i got it running on the module(personal victory!)
As mentioned, the volt/ampera has pids in common with the bolt/ampera so up next is get them working in my new vehicle template.
Allready did some tests but no luck so far. Keep you updated.

Bolt / Amperae help needed

Hello all,

I have made no progress with the ioniq template because I don't know how to get things to work in this template.
Changing some pids and formula's in the volt/ampera vehicle template gave me a partly usable template for my amperae that even works with abetterrouteplanner.
But I want to do it the right way and port the settings to the new vehicle template.
I would be great if someone would help me to get things started.

my work in progress can be found here

Thanks in advance,

Edwin

 

amperae
no bolt or ampera-e drivers ?

Hello,

Still looking for help in building a bolt / ampera-e template.
Anyone willing to help ?

Thanks,

Edwin
