GM has bought virtually all the assets of Israel-based battery software firm ALGOLiON for an undisclosed price. GM’s new Technology Acceleration and Commercialization (TAC) group led the purchase.
ALGOLiON has developed software that analyzes data streams from EV battery management systems to identify cell performance anomalies. This enables appropriate vehicle health management and early detection of battery hazards, including thermal runaway propagation. ALGOLiON says its algorithms can detect tiny changes that might affect battery health weeks earlier than is possible with other approaches, without extra hardware or sensors.
“ALGOLiON has developed cutting-edge battery analytics and prediction software that will help General Motors deliver great-performing EVs for our customers,” said Gil Golan, VP of GM’s TAC.
