Hi everybody, I'm a new 2012 Leaf Owner (35k miles) : SV Model Black who bought super-cheap as a commuter vehicle. I'm a database/web developer by trade and absolutely love data, stats and analysis. That's why when I saw that LeafSpy Pro had a option to send data to an External Server, I was thrilled and knew I had to store every piece of data I could from the device. Then it occurred to me that I'd love to have data from other vehicles and over time should be able to make some analysis and answer questions: What mileage can you expect the battery life bars to decrease? How does temperature and altitude fit into the equation? How does the life of the battery for 2011 compare with 2013 and 2015. When do people get new batteries (based on an obvious jump from say 8 bars to 12 bars)?
So, here's what I've done and asking. I have a VERY basic and ugly stats site at MyEVStats.com that shows data for (at least right now) my vehicle. Whoo hoo, 277 whole miles tracked. LOL.
If you and others are interested in sending me your data (super easy, takes you 5 seconds), it will be an incentive for me to continue development of it (I can't really do analysis on 1 "point" of data) and will help me/us see patterns and differences to report on.
This is and always will be Free! I'm not looking for a financial gain here, I'm interested as my Leaf is my new hobby and occupies a lot of my attention.
If this is something you are interested in, it's super easy to do:
- Goto the Settings in LeafSpy Pro (no idea if lower versions have it)
- Check the "Enable" Box in the "Server" section
- Set the "Send Interval" to whatever you're interested in (I really don't need more frequently than 1 minute, but I'll take whatever data you send me)
- Make sure HTTP is checked (I'll work on getting an SSL certificate later if there's enough interest)
- For the URL enter "api.myevstats.com"
That's it! Once you are connected to the car, it should start sending my server points and you should see the # of Vehicles incremented in MyEVStats.com by one. If you don't see that data, post an update here or send me a message and I'll see what's going on.
I hope I'm not out of line in posting this, but I think it could be a very revealing set of data set for all of us. If you're concerned about who I am, you shouldn't be as I'm pretty much the only Kirk Hilles around. I'm an easy going guy, married with 2 kids and live in North GA and work in Chattanooga, TN.
