Smartrak is excited about our new Nextrak device and the opportunities it brings for future capabilities. Nextrak is a new breed of hardware that integrates and surfaces data from vehicle CANbus systems directly into Smartrak.
Smartrak has led off the integration for EVs to surface critical vehicle information around battery state, electric range and charging status. With this data alone, a wealth of possibilities and reports can be derived. We're making this data visible to fleet administrators in real-time, and we're exploring where else in our product suite we can integrate the data - such as PoolCar, our Pool Booking solution to support the end-user experience as well.
WHY START WITH EV DATA?
- It's the number one piece of data our customers ask for.
- On-site smart chargers only give you part of the story (when they're plugged in).
- Range anxiety and other EV-related challenges require the support of data to address.
THESE DATA POINTS ARE ONLY THE BEGINNING
While today we are capturing and displaying your EV charge status, we know there is even more that can be developed and leveraged. There are so many possibilities and we're excited to work with our customers to prioritise the information needed. Your insights help inform our Development Roadmap and Initiatives, and we imagine some of the following data points will be of interest:
- Battery Health
- Time to Complete Charge
- Engine Warnings
