Software company Monolith has partnered with About:Energy to accelerate development of next-generation electric vehicle (EV) batteries and scalable battery modelling and testing.
R&D teams will develop pre-trained battery artificial intelligence (AI) models in an effort to cut time-to-market by up to 18 months.
With datasets from numerous batteries, About:Energy’s battery data will be used to improve manufacturers ability to understand the intractable physics of batteries.
Pre-trained models can reportedly deliver more accurate predictions for battery degradation and thermal runaway, reducing number of tests and associated costs while improving battery performance and safety.
CEO and founder of Monolith, Dr Richard Ahlfeld, said: “Our partnership with About:Energy allows us to build more accurate models predicting battery degradation and thermal runaway, using the most robust and reliable battery test data available to engineers.
“Whether you are an automotive OEM looking for more comprehensive data, a battery manufacturer, or an EV start-up without test facilities, our pre-trained AI models promise to help optimise your battery validation test plans, and ultimately accelerate the availability of better EVs.”
Achievements and innovations in electric vehicles will be celebrated at the third annual CiTTi Awards, which will be held on 26 November 2024 at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London. Nominations officially open in March 2024. Please visit www.cittiawards.co.uk to learn more about this unmissable event for the UK’s transportation sector.
