Bosch is set to launch a new cloud-based software service designed to extend the life of electric vehicle (EV) batteries. The cloud service will utilise real-time data to prevent batteries from aging prematurely, a common issue in EVs. Bosch’s technology works by monitoring the health of the battery and adjusting its recharging process to reduce stress. The system can also warn drivers when their battery is at risk of damage.

The technology is based on the concept of ‘swarm intelligence’, gathering information from all connected vehicles to make predictions about battery performance. Bosch believes this approach will help to extend the life of EV batteries by up to 20%. The company also suggests that the technology could reduce the total cost of EV ownership, making the vehicles more appealing to consumers.

The new service will be available to all manufacturers and fleet operators, offering a universal solution for battery life extension. Bosch plans to launch the cloud service globally, starting with pilot projects in Germany. The company is confident that the technology will play a significant role in the future of electric mobility, contributing to the wider goal of sustainable transport.
