Title: Electric Vehicle Energy Consumption Measurement Using GPS Data Logger
Keywords: Energy consumption, Current measurement, Electric vehicles

Abstract: In this paper a GPS data logger was used for logging the measured data of electric vehicle energy consumption. The data logger records the received GPS data for speed and distance traveled by the electric vehicle. Current and voltage sensors are also used, and their signals were recorded by the data logger. The results are presented in graphical form and analyzed.
