Meet E-Car Operating Center

Smart technologies shaping the future of cities

Considering the important role of e-mobility within urban spaces, the infrastructure for electric mobility must satisfy the requirements of the grid, but also meet the needs of the people in a modern Smart City. Drivers must be sure that they will be able to recharge their vehicles anywhere, and payment for electricity must be uniform across all distribution points. This infrastructure requires management by an E-Car Operation Center, the brain of e-mobility.

 

With more than 10 years domain experience of e-Car software and solutions our IoT has connected more than 85 million devices – including charging units.

 

With E-Car OC you can manage your charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (EVs), both in domestic and public or semi-public areas. Our existing customer base includes DSOs, EMPs, companies operating fleet management, municipalities for public charging, hotels, malls and logistics operators. Our open platform allows existing and new charging units from third-parties to be easily integrated into the solution.

Future-proof charging made easy

Reduce mobility CO2 footprint - a complete and interconnected eMobility infrastructure solution

The E-Car Operation Center: one central system

 

The main functional modules are:

 

  • managing the charging stations,
  • managing customer’s contracts,
  • managing the recharges in a smart way, according to the power grid status or to the real time price of energy,
  •  roaming and clearing.

The system is open and interconnected to the rest of the world, thus enabling integration with third party systems or roaming platforms generally available in the market. The system is cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS). Web portal and smartphone applications for end users are available: users can see the real time status of charging units, book charging stations, control the recharge details history and the status of their contracts and RFID cards.

Better operations – better utilization – better business 

A single system can manage multiple companies (municipalities, smart cities/communities, parking garage owners/operators, as well as any other companies or enterprises) and a variety of charging infrastructures (highway charging/ public charging/points of interest/ Fleets/ depots incl. buses). This capacity permits a holistic view on the e-mobility ecosystem. Siemens E-Car Operation Center has a “multi-tenancy capability”. In practice, just one system can offer operation center services to multiple clients entering the electric mobility market, thus reducing running and delivery costs and offering specific features for all stakeholders involved in the electromobility world.
