AbstractData collected from a solar-powered vehicle is monitored in real-time using a graphical user interface, which allows for a better understanding of the vehicle's status. This paper discusses improvements to the accessibility of the solar-powered vehicle's telemetry system. Internal vehicle systems collect data, which is transmitted over an IEEE 802.11N 5GHz network to an external system on a chip (SoC). The SoC runs custom telemetry software and hosts a web page that displays received data. Devices connected to the same network have the ability to view the telemetry data via WebSocket API on the web page. This allows for different devices to access the telemetry data without the need for specific software to be installed.
