ABB, a Swedish-Swiss group, operating mainly in robotics, power, and automation technology areas, says that the collaboration will combine its extensive experience in energy management, charging technology, and e-mobility solutions with AWS’s unparalleled portfolio of cloud technologies and software expertise.

The new platform is expected to show up in the second half of 2021, which will offer a customized user experience in a single-view platform. From the EV charge point to the fleet data dashboard, it will make EV fleet management more efficient and maximize reliability.

Speaking of their plans, the President of ABB’s eMobility Division, Frank Muehlon stated, “ABB and AWS share a similar vision around the potential of eMobility to transform society. Our combined expertise supports the common goal of making EV fleet management simpler and more accessible. This new solution will revolutionize the world of electric mobility, integrating EV hardware and software into one ecosystem to provide a seamless user experience.”

“We are confident that by working together we can propel the use of electric fleet vehicles by giving operators the confidence to make the switch, Frank commented on the partnership.

According to ABB, it has created a pureplay venture in Berlin that will develop tailored, scalable, and cost-effective technologies for fleet operators which can be used by all vehicle OEMs, to drive progress in the EVs fleet. This new venture will design the extreme fleet management solution to work with all vehicle types and charging infrastructure. Using machine learning and analytics, it will include features including charge planning and real-time monitoring with insight and actions for vehicle health and servicing, along with EV route optimization based on time of day, weather, and use patterns.

Recounting the aim of their partnership, Director of Professional Services, Automotive at AWS, Jon Allen said, “This collaboration between AWS and ABB will combine our companies’ deep expertise in the automotive, logistics, and electrification spaces with leadership in the cloud to deliver a hardware-agnostic, intelligent electric fleet management solution.”

“Together, ABB and AWS will bring the insights, agility, and scale the cloud provides to the electric vehicle industry and help our customers successfully transition to a lower-emission future,” Jon added.
