Software Interface

The software interface is the second level of EnergyBus. It is a two-sided communication (negotiation) between the components involved.

Software Interface

Bank Card
After inserting the bank card, the ATM negotiates with the bank; it checks the bank account, if the required amount can be withdrawn, if the PIN is correct etc.

EnergyBus
EnergyBus checks if the electric components involved (battery, motor, motor controller …) are ready to operate, if they are using the same voltage and current, if the battery if charged etc. The componentes exchange the information how they want to be treated and 'agree' on a certain voltage, current etc. This negotiation is based on a CANopen protocol.
