Exergi Predictive showcases new technology at SxSW: Bots by the Bridge
On March 13, 2023, Exergi Predictive, a leading provider of vehicle energy management solutions, participated in the South by Southwest (SxSW) Bots by the Bridge event in Austin, TX, presented by the Army Applications Laboratory.
Along with JKV Engineering, Exergi Predictive demonstrated its energy management software solution, user interface, and off-road vehicle to event attendees.
Exergi Predictive’s energy management software is designed to reduce range anxiety, increase mission success rate, and save energy in off-road vehicles. The software uses physics-guided machine learning algorithms to analyze past vehicle data and make energy use predictions before and during a trip. A custom user interface allows users to easily monitor and control vehicle battery and fuel levels in real-time, providing them with the information they need to make informed decisions.
At the Bots event, Exergi Predictive showcased their energy management software solution on an off-road vehicle developed by JKV Engineering. The vehicle incorporated an all electric drive system with a small diesel range extender (ReX) and was equipped with sensors that monitored an array of vehicle data. These data were fed to an edge computer that ran Exergi’s energy management algorithms. Attendees were able to see the software in action, as it made recommendations for reducing energy consumption during different driving scenarios.
In addition to showcasing their energy management software solution, Exergi Predictive also demonstrated their user interface, which allows users to easily monitor and control vehicle energy use before and during a trip. The user interface was designed to be intuitive and easy to use, making it accessible to users with minimal distraction. The user interface allows drivers to monitor their energy consumption in real-time, view historical data, and make adjustments to vehicle operating mode to conserve energy if needed.
The SXSW Bots at the Bridge event was a perfect opportunity for Exergi Predictive to showcase its energy management software solution to a wider audience. By participating in the event, Exergi Predictive was able to demonstrate the versatility of its technology and show attendees how it can be applied to both commercial and military applications.
Overall, Exergi Predictive’s participation in the SXSW Bots at the Bridge event was a success. By showcasing their energy management software solution, user interface, and off-road vehicle developed by JKV, Exergi Predictive clearly showed the potential of its technology and connected with future customers and partners. The event provided a valuable opportunity for Exergi Predictive to showcase its technology and highlight its predictive energy management technology.
