OTA Wants - Feature requests


#49

@rajeshkav - thanks for the summary. I would like to add a few to the list.

  1. Ability to see charging rate - Power being consumed real-time (KW) and Kms/min (charge being added). Would like to see this on the dashboard and mobile app.
  2. Reduce speedo error. This autocar magazine review suggests an error of ~10% compared to vbox.

  3. Rider profiles - use riding patterns to optimize scooter performance and range based on the individual.
  4. Access to more in-depth data about individual’s riding style. Providing some useful insights about accelerating and braking behavior can help us improve our riding and some tips to improve range.
  5. Ability to stop charging remotely from the app.

@Shreyas, would it be possible to share a list of upcoming or potential updates Ather team is working on and allow owners to vote on them. You can prioritize the development based on which features/functionality the users are more interested in.

thanks.

No.1 and 2 - are for OTA
No.3 to 5 - are for Mobile App; which I will list separately (there is another thread)

I agree to this elicitation technique. User’s demands are to be heard and I hope Ather listens and prioritize their developments.

@Shreyas - for the OTA and Mobile App update threads, may I suggest that you have a sticky post at the top that is regularly updated, so everyone can see in one place the laundry list of feature requests.

When searching for Ather Grid charging point, there should be option of getting Grids close to current location.

Agree this request as recently after taking delivery of the 450, i was searching for nearest Ather Grid and i got a complete list of irrelevant points that were too far off!
And Hence,
At least the app must display the Ather Grid depending on the Range Available on the 450 or the nearest point that is free and not engaged by other EV/450 users…!

while agree to above

for now please try searching on map and select to navigate which will be much easier - u can see most closest to ur location and simply select that (both on app and dashboard)


#55

I’m not sure if this is already requested. However, I was thinking if it is possible to have the following

  1. Parking blinkers
  2. Give more data on regen
  3. Cruise control (should not exceed 40kmph)

It will be useful to provide the user with alerts on the Ather app when the charge reaches a certain preset percentage or projected range like 50/80/100 % or say 30/50/70 km or one that the user can set depending on the commute planned.

This will help the user to check only when there is a notification and not keep looking at the app to see how much charge has accumulated.

Also, the red color feedback indicating higher consumption of battery power is a bit difficult to interpret. More red or more green are really relative indicators and not absolute. If the scooter has access to instant kwhr data then why not show that on the panel in addition to the range and speed? I have found the instantaneous fuel consumption feature in my car to be very useful and it helps me get superb mileage out of the car.
