CARMEDIALAB: HOW SMART CHARGING HELPS PTO TO SCALE UP ELECTRIC BUS DEPLOYMENT
Charging processes of a e-bus fleet are activities that should be addressed seriously. As battery-electric bus deployment grows, intelligent charging devices becomes crucial.
Based in Karlsruhe, CarMedialab is active in this segment since 2008. With the MOBILEcharge platform, the German company offers a tool that allows the PTO to visualize and control charging processes for the entire fleet. And the company also offers software for charging points.
The background? «Changing over to an electric fleet and the way vehicles are “fuelled” will change how things are run in the depot». CarMedialab’s General Manager Heiko Bauer goes deeper into the topic in this interview.
CarMedialab: our mission is enabling a cleaner mobility
“In our largest project at the moment, which by the way is one of the largest electric bus projects in Europe, we have around 260 e-buses charging at 160 charging stations each day”
