WAE Technologies has launched Elysia, its battery intelligence software offering that the company says is designed to unlock significant improvements in the life, safety, usable energy, power, and rapid charging times of any battery system. Elysia is the first mass-market software offering from WAE, combining a suite that can unlock the true potential of any battery, the company says.
Elysia features embedded and cloud-based products that give customers access to battery insights and the ability to manage, optimize and enhance performance across the battery’s entire lifecycle, both in the vehicle and in ‘second life’ applications such as stationary grid storage, WAE says. The company hopes that Elysia will reduce an OEM’s need to oversize or overengineer battery systems, enabling them to be lighter, cheaper and more sustainable.
The core offering is based around two key products:
Elysia Embedded is a suite of battery management algorithms, which run locally on the battery management system (BMS) – for example, directly on an EV’s battery or on a stationary energy storage system. Its BMS algorithms help OEMs to increase vehicle range, enable faster charging, and maximize battery power without compromising safety or battery life.
Elysia Cloud Platform is a cloud-based system that uses proprietary digital twin technology. The company says it helps OEMs, fleet owners and battery asset financiers turn data into actionable insights, designed to enable these customers to forecast and extend battery life, enhance safety, and protect warranty and residual values.
