General Motors (GM) will use a wireless battery management system (wBMS) in its electric vehicles (EVs). The system was developed together with Analog Devices and should be the main driver to power other solutions in e-mobility.
Many market analysts identify the wireless battery management system as one of the key enablers for the wider deployment of electric vehicles, helping auto OEMs avoid the need to redesign complex wiring diagrams for each new vehicle and helping to ensure battery scalability. A robust, reliable and secure system that works well and is protected with the latest IT security measures is critical.
The wBMS can be wirelessly upgraded with new software-based functionality through GM’s over the air Vehicle Intelligence Platform. The wireless system is used for data and diagnostic needs with all the required FCC and CCC certifications to ensure compatibility and cybersecurity provisions to protect our customers’ vehicles from outside tampering.
