Public transport companies introducing electric buses face a number of challenges. They need to make many strategic decisions and consider their investment and operating costs. It is also essential to implement a solution that comprises all aspects of electromobility, focuses on operational processes and supports the efficient management of e-buses.

What INIT can help you to achieve

In the implementation phase

  • Simulations as a basis for cost-effective investment decisions
  • Determination of an optimal charging concept
  • Design of a secure, regulated and calculable implementation process

In the operational phase

  • Comprehensive solution that includes all operational processes
  • Permanent overview of the charging status of electric buses
  • Smooth operation of electric bus fleet through reliable range forecasting
  • Cost savings by avoiding charge peaks, optimized calculations of required charging quantities, energy-efficient driving and optimized maintenance

Efficient operational planning of electric bus fleets with eMOBILE-PLAN

With the help of simulations, INIT’s planning system, eMOBILE-PLAN assists you gather important information in order to make strategic decisions and to minimize risks. Which e-buses are the right ones for your transport system? What is the best charging strategy for your public transport company? What are the investment and operating costs associated with the different options? In addition, eMOBILE-PLAN contains electromobility – specific parameters such as different outside temperatures or the route topology. With the use of efficient optimization algorithms, blocks are created that are both economical and robust – even for electric buses.

Precise range forecasting and monitoring with eMOBILE-ITCS

Always know the current state-of-charge: This is essential when using e-buses because the range depends on many factors and is therefore more difficult to predict than it is for diesel engines. That is why ranges must be monitored in the public transport company’s central management tool – the Intermodal Transport Control System. With the eMOBILE-ITCS extension, dispatchers can manage the state-of-charge and can intervene if necessary.

Before a dispatching measure is executed, the system checks whether the remaining range is sufficient to safely finish the block. The basis for all of this is a reliable range prediction that becomes increasingly precise through machine learning. The range prediction application MOBILErange uses historical operating data from the MOBILEefficiency evaluation system and generates a model for the battery consumption of individual vehicles, based on individual route segments using the latest machine learning techniques.

INIT’s eMOBILE-ITCS enables us to monitor and control all vehicle types in one central system. Our dispatchers receive a quick and comprehensive overview of the current state-of-charge and the remaining range. This simplifies their work.

Intelligent charge management with MOBILEcharge

MOBILEcharge guarantees cost-effective charge management of vehicles, ensuring that buses are always available on time, sufficiently charged and preconditioned whilstavoiding expensive load peaks. To intelligently manage charging processes, the charge management system should be connected to the MOBILE-DMS depot management system which is where information is available about planned blocks for the next day and associated charging requirements.

Additional features such as INIT’s system for energy-efficient driving complete the comprehensive overall solution, enabling public transport companies to successfully meet all the challenges posed by electromobility.
