Battery digital twin software developer Twaice has teamed up with telematics company ViriCiti in Amsterdam for comprehensive battery analytics for predictive manitenance of electric bus fleets.
The deal allows e-bus fleet operators and OEMs to access Twaice’s comprehensive battery reports as an integrated part of ViriCiti’s fleet management dashboard.
The battery health analytics offer valuable insights into the performance and aging of Li-ion batteries, enabling smarter investment planning as well as optimized operating and charging strategies. The software developed by Munich-based Twaice uses ViriCiti data to generate vital transparency on battery state of health and remaining useful lifetime.
“We are very excited to offer our customers the new Battery Health add-on powered by Twaice’s battery expertise. We were impressed with the in-depth insights into the battery health and remaining useful lifetime, and we think our customers will be too,” said Freek Dielissen, CEO & Co-Founder of ViriCiti
The Twaice predictive analytics software will be available as a Battery Health add-on module to approximately 3000 electric buses connected to ViriCiti’s platform. The software will generate vital insights into e-bus battery performance and capacity in the form of a state-of-the-art battery health report.
“By combining leading fleet management and state-of-the-art battery analytics software we will create superior value for our joint customers. Furthermore, our companies are united in the commitment to a zero-emission future.” – Dr Stephan Rohr, Managing Director & Co-Founder of Twaice.
Customers will now better understand the main factors contributing to battery degradation in their specific case. Maintenance costs will be reduced, battery issues prevented, and above all, battery life will be extended. Operation-specific advice on improvement can also be given. The German-Dutch alliance provides transparency of battery behavior and significantly reduces costs for OEMs and fleet operators.
