ABB and Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced a collaboration to jointly develop a cloud-based digital solution for the real-time fleet management of electric vehicles (EVs).

The solution will optimise the efficient use of EVs and speed up the electrification of transport fleets, helping fleet operators worldwide maintain 100 percent business continuity as they transition to fully electric.

The collaboration will combine ABB’s experience in energy management, charging technology and e-mobility solutions with AWS’s portfolio of cloud technologies and software expertise.

The new platform, which is planned for roll out in the second half of 2021, will offer a tailored user experience in a single view platform.

Working with AWS, this new venture will design the interoperable fleet management solution to work with all vehicle types and charging infrastructure.

Using machine learning and analytics, it will include a compelling set of 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.
