Panasonic Launched First EV Charging Service for India
News Desk, News Nation 360 : A diversified technology company, Panasonic, announced the launch of first of its kind smart EV charging service in India - Nymbus. A futuristic charging service combines physical components such as charging stations, swap stations, onboard charges, telematics systems and the virtual components like cloud service, analytics, intuitive dashboard, and artificial intelligence to deliver a one-stop solution. Nymbus is a unique technology platform by Panasonic India’s concentrated R&D efforts, designed and developed to cater to the growing mobility market in India. The service comes equipped with telematics sensors on the vehicles, allowing users to generate real-time data and reports from continuous
operation thus enabling them to use their fleet in the most efficient way. Built to learn and gain intelligence over time, the systems are poised to assist the fleet managers in monitoring and managing the entire fleet such as finding out the efficiency of different Li-ion battery packs, avoiding unnecessary charge trips due to lack of charging and real-time data, monitoring of vehicle data usage etc. The cloud and app service also allows EV and fleet owners to easily search and navigate the nearest charging point, thus reducing logistical challenges. The solution is poised to help individual EV users, EV fleet owners, e-commerce & logistics companies to manage their fleet more efficiently and also the utility providers, vehicle, equipment and battery manufacturers to understand the usage patterns and calibrate the products and services accordingly. Speaking about the launch, Atul Arya – Head Energy Systems Division, Panasonic India said that conceptualized and developed in-house, their charging service is currently meant for two and three wheelers, but Panasonic is aiming to expand that in the near future to other vehicles.
