The Electric Vehicle Monitoring System (EVMS) begins with an analysis of your routes and makes recommendations for vehicle assignments accordingly. It helps you understand the performance of an individual vehicle and compares that performance to other vehicles in the fleet. Armed with this information you can make the necessary alterations to create greater efficiencies.
Track impact heavy passenger loads has on performance
Understand the role time of day and congestion plays in performance
The need to cool or heat the vehicle can challenge a battery
How a driver operates the bus can impact battery life
Ensuring your vehicles are adequately charged at all times and planning for how they will be charged is a major consideration in your electric strategy. But, as crucial as charging itself is the ability for dispatchers, maintenance crew, and operators to have the visibility into the state of a vehicle’s charge. This visibility ensures the vehicle assigned for a piece of work is capable of completing that work and can eliminate the “range anxiety” associated with worrying that a vehicle will run out of power during a route. Alerts notify stakeholders when an issue arises.
