Swedish-Swiss technology manufacturer ABB and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are jointly developing a cloud-based digital solution for the real-time fleet management of electric vehicles (EVs).

The aim is to support fleet operators maintain business continuity as they transition to fully electric vehicles.

The collaboration will combine ABB’ experience in energy management, charging technology and e-mobility solutions with AWS’s cloud technology 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. From the EV charge point to the fleet data dashboard, it will make EV fleet management more efficient and maximise reliability.

Frank Muehlon, President of ABB’s eMobility Division, comments: “ABB and AWS share a similar vision around the potential of eMobility to transform society. Our combined expertise supports the common goal of making EV fleet management simpler and more accessible. This new solution will revolutionize the world of electric mobility, integrating EV hardware and software into one ecosystem to provide a seamless user experience. We are confident that by working together we can propel the use of electric fleet vehicles by giving operators the confidence to make the switch.”
