Project: Cloud Your Bus

Acronym CYB
Duration 01/01/2018 - 30/06/2020
Project Topic The Goal of “Cloud Your Bus” (CYB) is to create a data hub that provides live eBus and charge point data to OEMs, bus operators, charging infrastructure providers and operational planning solutions, with the aim to create operational excellence in zero emission bus operations. When different actors in the ecosystem are connected and agree to share data for the collective optimisation of the system, great efficiency gains can be realised in terms of costs, risks and time. Such platform is a key requirement to make the transition from fossil fuelled to zero emission buses economically viable for bus operators as the uncertainty in zero emission bus operations is a factor higher than fossil fuelled operations. Buying extra assets to comply with concession requirements is very costly and hence new, cross-actor innovations are required to allow zero emission concessions to become profitable and reliable. The CYB platform will cater for example: • Influencing drivers to adopt the lowest possible energy profile by providing real-time feedback on drive style specifically tailored to electric buses while driving. • Adapting line and charge planning in virtual real-time by monitoring set line/charge schedules and performing dynamic re-planning in case of exceptions. • Monitoring life-time battery state-of-health by evaluating degradation patterns based on driving and charging patterns. Ensuring that buses are used in conformity with warranty conditions and proactive alerting if this is not the case.
