NOVONIX, a battery materials and technology company, and SandboxAQ, an enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) company that combines artificial intelligence (AI) with quantum analysis (AQ), will collaborate to predict the lifespan of lithium-ion batteries.
The companies will combine SandboxAQ’s AI-driven chemical simulation software and NOVONIX’s Ultra-High Precision Coulometry (UHPC) technology and battery cell prototyping and testing capabilities to predict cell life. The resulting models will be used for data products and services in the first half of 2024, building on NOVONIX’s battery data platform.
“Collaborating with the scientists at NOVONIX to deploy machine learning algorithms and quantum simulations for battery R&D, we have an opportunity for immediate and substantial impact across application areas in energy storage. SandboxAQ’s predictive modeling technologies, paired with NOVONIX’s expertise, will transform the battery industry’s ability to make informed decisions around chemistries, processes, cells and technologies at every stage of research and manufacturing,” said Nadia Harhen, GM of Simulation and Optimization at Sandbox AQ.
