Battery In The Cloud By Bosch
Bosch is a German technology and engineering company. It has a range of products for electric vehicles’ manufacturers. Bosch has innovative solutions in accordance with changing technology. Recently, it unveiled a new concept called ‘Bosch battery in the cloud’.
Furthermore, the ‘Bosch battery in the cloud’ is an innovative battery management solution. It improves the electric vehicle’s performance. Additionally, it also enhances the service life of the battery.
The battery is a key component in an electric vehicle. Besides, it is also the most cost-intensive component. The battery increases the range and overall dynamics of the electric vehicle. It also reduces the overall operating cost of the vehicle. So, it is essential to keep batteries in good condition. This is very useful for large fleet operators.
Bosch is renowned in the field of electromobility and connected mobility. The extensive research in these fields resulted in the ‘Bosch battery in the cloud’. It is basically a cloud-based service that improves the service life of batteries. As a result, batteries deliver better performance.
An electric vehicle’s main important component is the battery. Batteries are very crucial for any electric car. They play a very important role in the electric power train.
Furthermore, it is very difficult to assess battery condition from outside. The batteries could die suddenly. They may incur a high cost for maintenance. The cost of replacing the battery is a costly affair. For a manufacturer, supplier, and owner, all these risks are difficult to assess. Here comes the cloud-connected solution – ‘Bosch battery in the cloud’.
The ‘Bosch battery in the cloud’ is a smart and connected solution. It assesses the battery condition correctly. As a result, it enhances overall transparency in terms of battery condition. Similarly, it reduces the battery wear upto 20%. So, it’s actually a cost-effective solution to almost everyone.
How Battery in the cloud works?
‘Bosch battery in the cloud’ improves the performance and operating life of batteries. The modular cloud services continuously monitor the condition and optimize the battery. The modular cloud offers various services. It includes lifetime monitoring, predictive diagnostics. Also, it provides the protective charging and usage certificates.
In lifetime monitoring, the system detects major battery stress factors. It transmits battery-low data and vehicle operating data to the cloud. It enables fleet operators to analyze the data. This avoids premature aging of the battery.
Furthermore, predictive analysis helps to identify battery faults. The data from batteries is analyzed. Then, the system predicts the chances of battery failures. ‘Bosch Battery in the cloud’ system then tells the user about the next course of preventive actions. It includes a timely visit to the workshop. Thus, it helps to prevent the occurrence of battery failures. At the same time, it increases the driver’s confidence in the technology.
Additionally, protective charging includes two more options than standard charging. Bosch Lifetime Charging enhances battery life without increasing charging time. Bosch Fast Charging enables fast charging without affecting battery life.
Furthermore, the usage certificate is an anti-manipulation certificate of battery condition. The system shows specific key factors in comparison with the new battery. It helps during reselling the vehicle. It is nothing but a certified proof of battery health.
In conclusion, ‘Bosch Battery in the cloud’ is a modern-age solution for long battery life. It also helps manufacturers and fleet operators to run batteries at optimum efficiency.
