American equipment maker Oshkosh Corporation has invested in Eatron Technologies, a developer of artificial intelligence (AI) powered battery management software (BMS).

Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Oshkosh president and chief executive officer John Pfeifer says the investment in Eatron, based in Warwick in the United Kingdom, will initially make improvements to the company’s electric vehicle (EV) products.

“AI-enabled BMS aligns to our electrification and advanced analytics focus areas,” Pfeifer says.

Eatron’s BMS adds 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,” says Eatron founder and chief executive officer Dr Umut Genc.

“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.”
