Daimler Buses showcases eCitaro and digital services at the 14th VDV Electric Bus Conference in Berlin

This year, Daimler Buses will once again be exhibiting the Mercedes-Benz eCitaro electric city bus – by far the best-selling electric bus in Germany – at the combined trade fair and symposium, known as “Elekbu”. Visitors to the Daimler Buses booth in Convention Hall II at the Estrel Hotel Berlin can also learn about the advantages of the latest generation of NMC 3 batteries for the eCitaro as well as the Omniplus On Uptime pro digital service, which was specifically developed for the requirements of transport companies with their own workshop. On March 27 at 2:00 p.m., Nils Richert, expert for e-mobility and charging infrastructure at EvoBus, will give a presentation covering “Turnkey solutions in electromobility”.

Mercedes-Benz eCitaro improves CO2 balance

The Daimler Buses stand at the Berlin Electric Bus Conference will once again focus on the Mercedes-Benz eCitaro, the most successful model amongst electric buses. Last year alone, almost 300 new eCitaro vehicles were registered in Germany – almost half of all newly registered electric buses over eight tons. Almost 700 eCitaro vehicles are currently being operated by German transport companies, with almost a quarter of these being articulated buses.

The two-door solo bus on exhibit is equipped with Preventive Brake Assist, the world’s first active brake assistant for city buses, and Sideguard Assist, a system that detects critical situations when turning. Eco Driver Feedback (EDF) driving style assistant helps drivers achieve an efficient driving style by showing corresponding information on the display.

Transport companies are kept informed about the condition of all vehicles at all times

The uncluttered display in the Omniplus On Portal prioritizes analysis data for the entire fleet sorted by urgency and contains concrete recommendations for action. On the one hand, this helps avoid the need for complex, costly vehicle replacement during ongoing operation in the event of non-critical malfunctions. On the other hand, this system can also prevent consequential damage and reduce the extent of damage. In addition, workshop personnel can use the remote query for fault detection and shorten servicing times. In the event of a fault message, there is no longer any need to travel to the vehicle and perform a manual diagnosis.

Omniplus On Uptime pro: Improved vehicle availability for bus fleets

In addition to bus hardware, Daimler Buses will be showcasing its Omniplus digital services at the Electric Bus Conference in Berlin. The Omniplus On Uptime pro service is aimed specifically at transport companies with their own workshop. This digital solution provides both fleet management and the workshop with important diagnostic information in real time. Omniplus On Uptime pro permanently monitors all relevant vehicle systems in Mercedes-Benz and Setra buses and touring coaches. All models since 2018 can be integrated into Omniplus On Uptime pro.
