COBI.bike Open Source Electric Vehicle Dashboard!

COBI.bike DEV kit (200 British Pounds) is something we were very excited to share with you guys. It’s a digital electric vehicle dashboard that you can customize completely or even make your own apps (some with no programming knowladge)!. Every electric bike, electric motorcycle or electric car DIY builder wants to have a nice view of motor performance, battery monitoring and speed gauges in a nice form without five different display showing one data at the time. To do so, one needs a programmable electric vehicle dashboard, SO THAT THE SYSTEMS SHOWS EXACT VALUES FOR GIVEN COMPONENTS. This almost infinite value input dashboards offer Voltage settings, battery Ah settings, speed limits etc…

Before we get into COBI.bike digital dashboard lets take a trip to relevant electric vehicle dashboard history. Please note that we are not talking about nonreusable DIY Ebike computers and dashboards that are brand related ( for example Bosch ebike computer that cant be paired with any ebike components that are not Bosch )

Electric Vehicle Dashboard History

Market standard for DIY Ebikes and Electric motorcycles Dashboardk was ruled many years by Cycle Anylist. A great product by Ebike.ca

The Cycle Analyst V1

The Cycle Analyst V1 (formerly called DrainBrain) is the first digital dashboard and battery monitor originally designed around the specific needs of electric bicycles. However, the flexible setup configurations, wide feature range, and affordable price have led it to widespread appeal in a range of other EV applications. From the dashboards of MIT’s solar car to record-breaking electric motorbikes, to small trains, powered wheelchairs, and even sailboats and airplanes, the Cycle Analyst has become the e-meter of choice for keeping track of the vehicle’s battery usage and performance characteristics. All Grin tech digital dashboards have updatable firmware. With numerous settings inside this little computer, it became the standard for any DIY electric vehicle maker, because of its possibility to customize main functions in order to get right Battery data, motor power data etc..

V3 Cycle Analyst

The Cycle Analyst V3

The V3 Cycle Analyst is the next step for the CA product line to not only monitor what is going on in an ebike, but also control it. In the V2 CA we included basic throttle over-ride capabilities for speed, current, and low voltage limiting that proved quite popular, but fundamentally it was mostly a passive display. With the V3 Cycle Analyst, all the ebike signals, from your brake cutoffs to your throttle to your pedal sensor, are first intercepted at the Cycle Analyst. The CA then processes all of these inputs to determine how to control your bike, which it then does via one standard throttle output signal to the controller. Cycle Analyst V3 is really a dream for any DIY ebike or electric motorcycle maker

Cycle Analyst under Justin’s supervision and development is going to be stay a leader, but there will be more and more other developments like COBI.bike that may take a piece of the cake

COBI.bike Electric Vehicle Dashboard DEV kit

To further enable its Smart Biking approach, enviolo’s (ex Nuvinci) partner, COBI.bike opens the COBI.bike App for developers and allows third parties to integrate their enhancements. In addition to users, also companies are welcome to create bicycle-specific app additions for their business applications. With little development effort, dealers could stay in touch with their customers through the COBI.bike App. ( cloud based )

Its easy to get confused. COBI.bike allready sells ready made component for BOSCH ebikes. This are not capatable to pair with different ebike controllers or to PLUG&PLAY with your configuration

ONE OF THE BOSH EBIKE SETUP dashboards is called COBI.bike Plus. Full list is here

We took this as an example of features, so you can get an idea what can you later program with COBI.bike DEV KIT
