Zero emission operations

The transition to zero emission vehicles in urban transport represents a significant challenge when it comes to operational control and planning.

Limited battery capacity and driving range and the need for opportunity charging during operations makes the transition operationally risky and potentially costly. The operational vulnerability can be solved by either adding more assets to operations (which is costly) or by developing solutions that allow for real-time insight in status of electric  vehicles, charging infrastructure, battery state-of-health and that allow for dynamic (re)planning of operations (which is smarter).

 

Sycada’s suite of z-e modules aim to facilitate the latter.

Module EV status monitor

Access to live z-e vehicle and charge point data, including:

  • Location and status of vehicles
  • Live battery data (State-of-Charge, Estimated Range)
  • Status and progress of charging sessions

 

Access to detailed reports on z-e vehicle usage and energy consumption and pro-active alerting in case of operational exceptions, interruptions or potential problems.

Module Charge Point Manager

Access to availability and status of charging infrastructure as well as operational statistics and reports on charge cycles, uptime, etc.

 

Remote management of charge points, including:

  • Soft/hard reset function
  • Over-the-Air firmware and configuration updates
  • Access to Transaction log files and diagnostics data for maintenance purposes

Cloud Your Bus innovations

Sycada leads the European Consortium Cloud Your Bus (CYB), part of the European Innovation programme EMobility Europe (2018-2020). As part of this programme new modules will be added to our system, including a documented API for the subscription to vehicle, battery and charge point data by third parties/partners.

Module Battery Health Monitor

Monitoring that batteries are used within the warranty conditions of manufacturers as well as State-of-Health and degradation of batteries.

Module Schedule Monitor

Monitoring of route and charge planning and active alerting in case of (potential) operational planning problems. The Schedule Monitor also allows for adaptive replanning in virtual real time.
