Software Systems & Services

Better Place: Better Place has created a system called “AutOS” (codename) with technology from several partners to run inside electric vehicles, enabling the cars to crunch energy calculations, deliver an “energy plan” for each driver, and find the closest charging and battery swap station. The cars will all have an “always-on connection.”

Microsoft: Microsoft developed the Sync system used in Ford vehicles, and Better Place is using the company’s “Windows Embedded” software for its AutOS system.

SAP: Providing software packages to manage accounting and billing for Better Place’s AutOS.

Amdocs: Providing software packages to manage accounting and billing for Better Place’s AutOS.

IBM: IBM aims to help manage coordination of players in the charging ecosystem including utilities, billing system developers, cities, hardware companies and automakers. In Denmark, for example it’s developing tech to synchronize EV charging with the availability of wind on the grid. IBM also joined the EDISON research consortium in February 2009, partnering with Denmark’s DONG Energy and a handful of other companies to develop smart infrastructure for EVs.

Gridpoint: GridPoint’s Smart Charging 3.0 system lets utilities automatically and dynamically shed portions of the load from plugged-in, charging vehicles based on set parameters — such as a promise that charging will be completed within six hours.

Google: For its RechargeIT program, Google.org is collecting data from a small fleet of plug-in hybrid vehicles using an embedded computer (running Linux and connected to the vehicle’s CANbus), a wireless data card, a GPS device and an AC power monitoring device. The embedded computer collects speed, distance driven, fuel use, high voltage battery parameters and other data, which is periodically uploaded to Google servers via wireless connection.
