A UK company has launched artificial intelligence (AI) based technology for range prediction for EVs. It comes as an app or is integrated into the satnav system. It is much more accurate and personal than solutions on the market, and has proven to alleviate drivers’ anxiety in live trials. Automotive manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers are sought to acquire the technology under license.
The shift to electric vehicles is being slowed by two main driver anxieties; range and time. They express it as asking ‘Will I reach my destination without running out of charge? Do I need to find a charge point, and delay my arrival?’
Current onboard systems don’t deliver the reassurance that drivers need to overcome these
fears. The new technology launched in the UK uses live data and artificial intelligence (AI) to remove range anxiety and build trust. Current solutions rely on historic not live data and that explains why the new solution is 8-10x more accurate for energy and range prediction than other automotive manufacturers. The new algorithm calculates in factors about the actual destination, user’s style, and weather.
The UK company is interested in partnerships with Tier 1 suppliers and automotive manufacturers where the technology can be deployed through the Satellite Navigation system in the vehicle to provide confidence in range and a personalised demo experience for a customer.
• 6-9 months
• Costs would cover evaluation license and project costs related to development, testing and analysis of data.
The personalised journey prediction utilises live data and harnesses machine learning algorithms to improve predictions after each completed journey. The technology has patents published across Europe and US covering the system design and applications for autonomous vehicle applications.
Type of partner sought: industry.
Specific activity of partner: automotive manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers.
Role of partner sought:
To acquire the technology under license as Software Development Kit (SDP) allowing customers to implement the technology in their own applications. This gives partners speed to market, freedom to deploy the technology and IP within their own applications/situations.
The company proposes a 6-month project which would include an evaluation license and project costs. Spark licenses the technology on a license fee and tiered royalty model.
