ABB and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are set to jointly develop a cloud-based digital solution for the real-time fleet management of electric vehicles (EVs), Freight News sister publication Energize has reported.
The solution aims to optimise the efficient use of EVs and speed up the electrification of transport fleets, helping fleet operators worldwide maintain 100% business continuity as they transition to fully electric.
The collaboration will combine eMobility company ABB’s extensive experience in energy management, charging technology and e-mobility solutions with AWS’s portfolio of cloud technologies and software expertise.
Planned for roll out in the second half of 2021, the new platform will offer a tailored user experience in a single-view platform. From the EV charge point to the fleet data dashboard, it is designed to make EV fleet management more efficient and maximise reliability.
Quoted in the report, Frank Muehlon, president of ABB’s eMobility division, said that ABB and AWS shared a similar vision around the potential of eMobility to transform society. “Our combined expertise supports the common goal of making EV fleet management simpler and more accessible. This new solution will revolutionise the world of electric mobility, integrating EV hardware and software into one ecosystem to provide a seamless user experience. We are confident that by working together we can propel the use of electric fleet vehicles by giving operators the confidence to make the switch.”
