Reverse Engineering the MG ZS EV

Project Morris is the reverse engineering and documentation of the CAN Networks and UDS data from the MG ZS EV.

One of the key outputs will be to control the cars function from an app on your phone, a greatly missed feature from UK and EU spec vehicles. We are working with OVMS hardware to achieve this.

This site showcases the work so far, and how anyone can get involved in this project.

Discourse Community

If you want to dive into reverse engineering your car, or simply just want to know what to plug in where on your OVMS box, the best place to start is the Discourse group, setup and run by RES to support developers and the community who are interested in "hacking" their cars.
