Emobi and Autocrypt have launched the first US-based Plug & Charge ecosystem, leveraging AI to revolutionize electric vehicle (EV) charging. This groundbreaking system aims to enhance convenience, security, and efficiency in EV charging through advanced AI and machine learning technologies.

Key Highlights:

  • Partnership: Autocrypt, a leader in automotive cybersecurity, partnered with Emobi, a US-based e-mobility hub.
  • Standards: Developed a secure communication framework based on ISO 15118-2 and ISO 15118-20 standards.
  • Security: Utilizes a robust Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) to ensure data security and compliance with US government regulations.
  • Innovation: Features an intelligent error-handling system that addresses edge cases in ISO 15118 standards.
  • Collaboration: Worked with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory to contribute to the National Charging Experience (ChargeX) Consortium.

In June 2023, Autocrypt and Emobi collaborated to create a secure communication framework for EVs and charging stations, adhering to ISO 15118-2 and ISO 15118-20 standards. This partnership focuses on building a robust Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), enhanced with AI and machine learning models, to address errors and data inconsistencies in traditional Plug & Charge systems.

The new Plug & Charge ecosystem allows EV drivers to start charging at any station simply by plugging in their vehicle. Through asymmetric encryption technology, chargers automatically identify the EV and securely process the payment. This US-based system ensures data security and compliance with local regulations, featuring an advanced error-handling system that sets a new industry benchmark.

Throughout the collaboration, Emobi worked closely with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory to ensure the ecosystem’s contributions to the National Charging Experience (ChargeX) Consortium. This initiative is funded by the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation of the United States.

“Security in EV charging infrastructure enhances openness while providing better control,” said Sean HJ Cho, President of Autocrypt North America. “By combining our PKI technology with Emobi’s expertise in AI and machine learning, we are bringing a secure yet innovative Plug & Charge solution to market, creating an unrestricted charging environment that ensures convenience, precision, and security throughout the entire charging and payment processes.”

Lin Sun Fa, CEO of Emobi, added, “The focus is to enable EV automakers, charger operators, and e-mobility service providers to continue building their products without being hindered by edge cases and constantly evolving standards. We are leveraging AI and Autocrypt’s PKI technology within the existing ISO 15118 standards, ensuring ease of implementation while improving charging infrastructure quality and security.”
