Launch of energy-monitoring dashboard

Friday, 02 November, 2012

This month, Wellington geospatial company Splice Group will launch an energy-monitoring dashboard that accurately judges energy use in real-time.

“We’ve piloted this technology on an electric motorbike in conjunction with Astara Technologies, but it can be applied to electric cars as well,” said company director Richard Redman.

“The program measures energy use against the terrain a car or bike is driving over. Going uphill requires more energy while going downhill doesn’t require as much. It means drivers will have an accurate ‘electric fuel-gauge’ on their dashboard.

“It also has the potential to provide smart and quick energy monitoring for green communities who want to stay off the grid.

“The dashboard measures energy use against energy stores and can notify people relying on wind or solar energy when they’re using too much power and when they need to ease up.”

The Energy Monitoring Dashboard will be showcased at the Esri Asia Pacific Users Conference (5-7 November) and the Association of Local Government Information Management Conference (11-14 November).
