Abstract : Electric vehicles are the need of the hour due to the prevailing global conditions like global warming and increase in pollution level. For a driver, controlling the EV is same as a conventional IC engine automobile. Similar to the instrument cluster of a conventional vehicle, EV also has an instrument cluster that acts as an interface between the human and the machine. But the later one displays more critical parameters that are very essential for controlling the EV. This paper deals with the development of EV instrument cluster that would display vital parameters by communicating with different ECUs of the vehicle using industrial standard CAN bus. Speedometer and odometer details are displayed on a touch screen panel which is designed with a user-friendly interface. Python-based GUI tools are used to design the interface.
