SUN Mobility in partnership with Microsoft is building a ‘Smart Network’ to effectively deploy its universal energy infrastructure for electric vehicles. The Smart Network will use Microsoft’s Azure IoT technology to connect the SUN Mobility smart battery and SUN Mobility quick interchange station (QIS) with end users through a mobile application.
SUN Mobility also plans to utilise Microsoft Azure AI in the Smart Network to analyse telemetry data to build Machine Learning (ML) models that would predict battery performance, energy requirements and improve service delivery experience for EV users.
‘In an era where the future of mobility is electric, powered by renewable energy and driven by AI, we’re excited to partner with Microsoft to leverage cutting edge Cloud, IoT and AI technology,’ said Uday Khemka, Co-Founder and Vice Chairman of SUN Mobility.
SUN Mobility’s Smart Batteries are light-weight, long-life, compact and swappable. They are also intelligent, modular, interoperable and flexible, allowing for the same solution to be compatible with multiple vehicle platforms including two-wheelers, three-wheelers, cars and busses.
The company plans to build a network of Quick Interchange Stations that are easy to install and ensures quick refuelling of electric vehicles. These stations are compact and modular, allowing flexibility of shifting basis demand in a cost-effective manner.
‘This partnership is testimony to our commitment towards empowering people and organisations to achieve more through innovative implementation of Microsoft’s intelligent edge and intelligent cloud platform. After having worked with SUN Mobility as part of the ScaleUp programme, we are excited about the immense potential that the organization will be able to drive using Microsoft’s Azure based solutions in the sustainable energy industry. Together we will enable both efficient and safe transportation for our planet,’ added Chad Fowler, GM and CTO, Startup and Developer Advocacy, Microsoft.
