Advancements in Predictive Safety Diagnostics with Electric Vehicles

As electrification accelerates, the role of batteries has become increasingly important. However, with great power, comes great responsibility. The battery needs to be safe. Regrettably, the number of safety-related battery incidents are increasing. This session will explore the latest developments in big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and cloud-based software, and how they are meeting the pressing market demands. It will provide a comprehensive analysis of the significance of big battery data in contrast to BMS safety management, and how cloud-based analytics can prevent safety incidents and specific aging effects.
