US-based e-mobility hub Emobi and auto cybersecurity firm Autocrypt have announced the first US-based ‘Plug & Charge’ ecosystem powered by artificial intelligence (AI) for EV charging.

The firms partnered in June 2023 to to develop a secure communication framework for EVs and charging stations based on ISO 15118-2 and ISO 15118-20 standards.

The collaboration has focused on building a robust Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) utilising fine-tuned AI and machine learning models to address errors and data inconsistencies prevalent in traditional Plug & Charge systems.

Unlike other Plug & Charge services, this is the first Plug & Charge ecosystem headquartered in the United States, ensuring data security and compliance with the US government.

Throughout this collaboration, Emobi says it has worked closely with the US Department of Energy (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory to ensure that findings from this ecosystem contribute to the National Charging Experience (ChargeX) Consortium, funded by the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation of the United States.

Sean HJ Cho, President of Autocrypt North America said: “Security in EV charging infrastructure enhances openness while providing better control.”

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.”

The Plug & Charge ecosystem enables EV drivers to start charging at any station by plugging in their vehicle.

Through asymmetric encryption technology, the chargers automatically identify the EV and securely process the payment of the EV charging session.
