Would you like to integrate EV user requirements and expectations into the equation? Would you like to prioritize particular users? With SMATCH M3 you can do exactly that. EV users entering your site have access to an app to input the time they plan to stay connected and how many kWh they expect to have charged by the time they leave. SMATCH will adjust charging speed allocation accordingly.
Prioritizing requests and rewarding fair users
But what if driver expectations are high and the available capacity is low? The site or fleet manager can define rules to decide how SMATCH prioritizes the various requests. SMATCH M3 also checks driver history and assigns higher scores to drivers who best respect recommended practice.
Keeping the EV user informed
Of course, we don’t keep EV users in the dark. SMATCH app users get precise information about the charge level that can be delivered, and by what time.
Finetuning the forecast occupation
SMATCH M3 includes smart forecasting of the charging station occupation level. In addition to storing the time of arrival and the requested charging time and level, the system also records the time of departure. Consequently, SMATCH can take account of user habits to so that the future charging station occupation level can be estimated, allowing charging speed allocation to be optimized.
Customization and integration
Various types of customization are available to site and fleet managers, including integrating prioritization rules within third-party dashboards or platforms, or the possibility of defining EV needs in terms of distance range and time.
