It is a challenge that OEMs can now meet head-on with the assistance of SpaceTime's analytical prowess. With its advanced data-driven capabilities, SpaceTime is a becoming an important asset in the optimization of EV battery charging cycles.

R&D Efficiency and Cost Savings

The development of efficient charging protocols is traditionally a trial-and-error process, requiring significant investment in physical testing and prototype development. SpaceTime assists in the rapid transformation of this process by providing OEMs with a data-centric approach.

Its sophisticated analytics engine processes telematics data, allowing engineers to model and refine charging strategies virtually. This reduces the necessity for physical prototypes, leading to considerable cost savings in material and labor.

And more importantly, it accelerates the feedback loop – enabling quicker iteration and development of optimized charging cycles that can be tested and validated with a higher turnover rate.

Extended Battery Life and Improved EV Range

Battery longevity is intrinsically tied to how it is charged. Mireo SpaceTime assists OEMs in understanding the complex relationship between charging patterns and battery wear. Through rigorous data analysis, OEMs can now pinpoint the optimal balance between charging speed and battery health – ensuring that each cycle contributes to an extended lifespan.

The platform's ability to help with the simulation of long-term charging effects allows for the adjustment of charging algorithms to prevent overcharging and reduce degradation – thereby enhancing the EV's range.

This not only meets consumers' range expectations but also minimizes the long-term ownership costs associated with battery replacement and service.
