What is the common factor among the following events?
Electric vehicles on fire.
Chevrolet’s US$2B Bolt recall.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s fiasco.
A failed battery. Batteries fail due to poor cell quality, inefficient thermal management and suboptimal battery management systems. This can not only cause physical harm to the end customer and damage the brand but can delay or even completely derail Electric Vehicle (EV) adoption. Furthermore after accidents, employees and customers quit, OEMs are in a legal soup and lose market share rapidly.
To solve this, RC Labs is developing intelligent Battery Management Systems (BMSs) which are adaptive, chemistry agnostic and modular. With intelligent BMSs and accurate battery models, RC Labs aims to enable a safe & circular battery economy.
