SERVICE SPECIFIC TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Recurrent Research Panel Terms
Recurrent is developing machine learning algorithms to predict future battery life and range across all EV models. We are assembling a panel of ~1000 current EV drivers who are willing to share anonymous access to their vehicle data over time, so Recurrent can observe battery state and range estimates in a variety of weather conditions and driving situations.
If you elect to participate in the research panel, you agree to these Recurrent Research Panel Terms.
1. Eligibility to Participate. Currently, the following EV models are supported: Tesla Model S, 3, X; Nissan Leaf 2016 and later; BMW i3 2017 and later, X5, i8, 5-series plug-in, 3-series plug-in; Ford Fusion Energi 2019 and later; Chevy Volt, Bolt, Spark; VW e-Golf; Jaguar I-Pace; Chrysler Pacifica Plug-in; Audi e-tron, and Audi A3 Plug In. Additionally, you will need an active connected services account with the vehicle manufacturer (such as Nissan Connect EV, BMW Connected Drive, Tesla’s API, etc.). We double check your car’s eligibility as part of the signup process.
2 Enrollment Process.
2.2. You will be required to authenticate your car by selecting your car’s manufacturer and logging in with your car’s connected services account.Once you authenticate your car, you will be presented with a list of data about your vehicle that Recurrent will be allowed to access: VIN, current odometer, current state of charge, current charging status, and current range estimate. After you agree to allow Recurrent access to the specified data and click the “Connect Your Car” button, you will receive a confirmation email from Recurrent. Thereafter, Recurrent will typically make data requests 1-3 times per day to build up a historical profile.
