AVL Smart Charging – Infrastructure

Supporting the development of intelligent charging solutions

Key among our R&D activities in this field are our charging infrastructure solutions. Designed to support OEMs in the development of products that keep human interaction to a minimum, they feature a high level of autonomy. Two-way communication between the vehicle and the charger optimizes charging to reduce recharge time, detect hardware faults and prevent damage to the battery system.

Compliance with industry Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) standards ensures safety and performance, while our tools cover everything from software to hardware engineering. We even have our own proof-of-concept charging solution, the AVL Rapid Charge prototype, so OEMs can see our solutions in action.

Hardware Development

We have developed a wide range of solutions to aid the development of smart charging infrastructure devices. These include system engineering and testing tools, and electronic and mechanical development products. These enable OEMs to develop their own battery charging solutions that are of the highest quality in terms of performance and reliability. It also ensures that their products are compliant with industry standards.

Software Support

Behind all charging infrastructure hardware projects lie our intelligent software solutions. Helping you optimize your device performance and extend the life of the battery system, these help you make the most of your offering.

The Added Value

To ensure the best possible outcome, we offer testing and validation solutions that support the development of robust and reliable charging infrastructure products. Based on our extensive history in automotive development and decades of research into electric vehicle systems, we work on a right-first-time approach that frontloads development.
