Lisbon-based predictive fleet maintenance platform Stratio is going to present at IT-TRANS 2022 the findings of the Battery Cortex Project on predictive battery analytics for Electric Vehicles (EVs), conducted in partnership with the University of Halmstad, a leading research body in the field of Information Technology and Innovation Sciences. These will be the subject of a presentation by Rune Prytz, Head of Research at Stratio.

The panel, titled “Transitioning to Electric Buses Successfully” will take place at 15:30 CET on Tuesday the 10th of May,  in Hall 1 of the exhibition floor. 

With zero-emission bus sales forecasted to rise by 83% on the global market by 2040, and with the EU’s climate plan to reduce gas emission by at least 55% by 2030, having a cost effective strategy to transition to electric vehicles is paramount for today’s urban bus fleet operators. 

“Batteries account for 40% of the total cost of electric buses, therefore their performance determines the lifespan and cost of ownership of the vehicles,” said Rune Prytz. “For this reason, we directed our efforts to solving the three problems that currently exist with EV batteries: the monitoring of internal faults, battery life optimisation, and predicting future battery capacity,” he explained. 

At IT-TRANS, Rune Prytz will cover how the Stratio state-of-the-art predictive fleet maintenance platform for EVs solves those problems by providing urban bus fleet operators with the following insights:

EV battery assessment: analysis of State of Health (SOH), maximum capacity and remaining useful life prediction

Real-time information on the vehicle: access vehicles remotely to receive actionable information on issues and malfunctions in real-time

Detailed fault information: visualize a full history of occurrences at any time with detailed repair information

The panel, titled “Transitioning to Electric Buses Successfully” will take place at 15:30 CET on Tuesday the 10th of May,  in Hall 1 of the exhibition floor. 

Stratio will be located at booth X20 in the dm-arena hall.
