AI-based telematics solution to help fleets migrate to EVs

Developed by software company Spark EV Technology, the plug and play solution and accompanying smartphone app use Artificial Intelligence software algorithms to predict journeys for electric vehicles based on live data, previous trips and chargepoint locations.

Open for use with all electric vehicles, the solution – which also deploys sensor technology that’s said to be easy to install, and cloud-based machine learning analysis software – can tell drivers if they can complete their journey on their current level of charge and, if not, advises where to charge.

According to Spark EV, the solution can increase the number of journeys completed between charges by up to 20%. Fleet operators can also use the intelligence from the software to decide whether to add extra journeys or drop-offs to EV routes, based on the remaining charge capacity.

The data is supplied on a monthly subscription basis and the solution is designed for easy integration with existing fleet management/scheduling systems through its open API, or can be used as a standalone solution for smaller fleets.
