Leading battery analytics software company TWAICE has joined forces with ViriCiti, the leading telematics provider for electric bus fleets, in order to enable OEMs and fleet operators to optimize the management of their e-bus batteries and increase their residual value.
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.
Eliminating guesswork, with data
Batteries are at the heart of the transition to a zero-emission future. But they pose big challenges. Without the insights and knowledge that this partnership will provide, fleet managers and route planners can do no more than guess the status of their batteries. TWAICE and ViriCiti can change this – responding to the increasing customer demand to understand their batteries’ state of health and remaining useful lifetime.
“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 and 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.
