Oshkosh has invested in AI battery management system developer Eatron Technologies.

The investment by Oshkosh in Eatron supports the development of advanced AI analytics and predictive modeling for lithium-ion batteries to manage its wide range of electric vehicles.

OskKosh companies cover a wide range of industrial applications, including self-driving and military vehicles. Eatron recently signed a deal with About:Energy in the UK to use its battery modelling technology.

“The investment in Eatron Technologies is part of our broader strategy to collaborate with advanced technology companies to accelerate bringing best in class innovation to our customers,” said John Pfeifer, president and chief executive officer of Oshkosh Corporation. “AI-enabled BMS aligns to our electrification and advanced analytics focus areas. It will bring enhanced safety and continuous performance optimization to our EV product line.”

Eatron is developing smarter battery management technology by implementing an intelligent software layer on top of existing battery control platforms that can be hosted on the cloud or on the edge. Its BMS combines models of the battery with AI and advanced estimation methods, to ensure accurate and reliable predictions about the battery’s state, health and operation.

“Funding from Oshkosh Corporation will enable Eatron to develop and deploy new embedded and cloud-based features for our unique software platform. The world is increasingly moving towards software-defined vehicles and batteries, and we are at the forefront of offering intelligent software solutions to speed up this transformation,” said Dr. Umut Genc, founder and CEO of Eatron.
