VIGIL, an innovate UK funded consortium has rolled out a new control platform for Vehicle-to-Grid/Building (V2G/V2B) systems and distribution networks.
See ByteSnap's Demo at Embedded World 2019 SnapUI at Embedded World 2019 ByteSnap is back at the world's largest embedded electronics trade show this month - with a demonstration of our highly flexible UI framework. Our interactive cooker control demo will be running SnapUI Linux on NXP's much-anticipated i.MX7ULP processor at Embedded World 2019 in Nuremberg, Germany. SnapUI is ByteSnap's high-efficiency graphic framework which allows you to create high performance user interfaces for low power devices. ByteSnap Director Graeme Wintle says “We are very excited showing SnapUI working on the 7ULP, it demonstrates the efficiency and versatility of the framework on such a low power device.” The demonstration uses the SnapUI framework to render using the OpenGL accelerated GPU of the i.MX7 [...]

One million seconds to Christmas MARKING 1 MILLION SECONDS TO CHRISTMAS FOR CHARITY With the countdown to the big day continuing - we decided to mark 1 million seconds to Christmas with a festive coffee morning for charity. Earlier today, at 10:13:20 (exactly one million seconds to Christmas), ByteSnap staff gathered together for "Mince Pies and Munchies" to raise money for our Christmas charity this year - the Buddy Bag Foundation. The Buddy Bag Foundation was set up by Karen Williams in response to the increasing number of children fleeing violent situations at home and ending up in emergency accommodation. The charity prepares essentials back packs for children entering emergency care after a traumatic incident. The purpose of the Buddy Bags is [...]
EV Charging: PlugFest 2018 Review PlugFest 2018 - so what was it really like? An update now on our VIGIL Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) project! We’ve been busy working alongside our consortium partners on the foundation of our pioneering V2G platform. ByteSnap is developing the OCPP module and companion app for the V2G system. As part of our VIGIL project R&D, two ByteSnap engineers took part in an international EV testing symposium recently. They’re held at different destinations around the world each year and this was our first time at such an event. So, was it worth it…? Read our Q & A and find out… PlugFest 2018 Review – Q & A Where and when? The 10th International Testing Symposium was held on [...]
Birmingham 10K: ByteSnap Runners Among Record-Breaking Participants ByteSnap Runners Join Thousands for City Run L-R: Calum, Chris and Ville at the end of the run Three ByteSnap engineers have vowed to take on the 2019 Birmingham 10K Run after a snap decision to join this year's event. Calum, Chris and Ville were among a record-breaking 8,000 runners participating in the Simplyhealth Great Birmingham 10k earlier this month, on May Bank Holiday Sunday. The engineers were last minute entrants: "As an alumnus, a few weeks ago I got a letter from the University of Birmingham urging me to take part," explained Chris. "I'd done quite a bit of trail running, so I thought I'd try an official, timed run - and managed [...]
ByteSnap in Consortium to Develop Pioneering V2G Technology We’re pleased to announce that ByteSnap and a consortium of partners have been awarded a two-year collaborative project, VIGIL (Vehicle-to-Grid Intelligent Control), under a Vehicle-to-Grid competition, funded by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The other partners in the Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) consortium are: Aston University Nortech Management Grid Edge VIGIL – spearheading the UK’s smart energy market The VIGIL project is focussed on developing a new communication and control platform for Vehicle-to-Grid/Building (V2G/V2B) systems: an off-vehicle system that controls how, when and the rate at which electric vehicle batteries are charged/discharged with respect to local substation constraints and EV/building energy [...]
