SUN Mobility has partnered with Microsoft to develop a smart network to effectively deploy its universal energy infrastructure. The company will now harness Microsoft’s Azure cloud technology to establish connect between SUN Mobility Smart Battery and its Quick Interchange Station (QIS) via mobile application. The smart network will allow identification of the nearest QIS and also track battery charge under the SUN Mobility’s energy infrastructure.
SUN Mobility’s smart network leverages Microsoft’s Azure IoT for tracking, diagnostics, health monitoring and anti-theft capabilities of batteries. The geospatial visualisation and planning tools help in the deployment of a city-wide network of stations at strategic locations for efficient battery swapping service delivery. The company is contemplating to use Azure AI to analyse telemetry data for developing machine learning models. The models would predict battery performance, energy requirements and enhance service delivery for EV users.
Chetan Maini, Co-Founder and Vice-Chairman, SUN Mobility, said that the smart network enables it plan and optimise its energy infrastructure investments. Better utilisation of assets helps offer energy services to our users in a cost-effective manner, he added.
