Electric vehicles (EV) feature detailed monitoring and control over the CAN bus. Some of this data is made available to users on the On-Board Diagnostic version II (OBDII) bus thus providing an opportunity for large scale high-frequency data collection. This paper introduces a connected monitoring system for OBDII equipped vehicles. The system comprises a low cost hardware design and monitoring algorithms designed to optimize the number of variables collected and their collection frequency. The algorithm aims at collecting a high quantity of Battery Management System (BMS) data in electric vehicles together with power-usage data to enable short and long term estimation for battery state of health (SOH) and state of charge (SOC). The proposed system has been implemented and tested on a Nissan Leaf and lead to the acquisition of 1.7 million records over 120 hours of driving.
