Periodic Reporting for period 1 - Konetik eLCV (Artificial Intelligence based Smart Charging Assistant for Electric Light Commercial Vehicle Fleets)
Periodo di rendicontazione: 2018-11-01 al 2019-01-31
Konetik already developed an automated EV suitability advisor and charging assistant to help fleets to integrate electric vehicles. Based on the learnings of the previous projects, we identified that Large Commercial vehicles have a great electrification potential, so we chose this early adopter segment to customer base of our future product.
We also analyzed the product concept from business point of view. We conducted a market research and competitor analysis in the e-mobility scene. We have conducted 20 interviews with fleet managers and e-mobility experts to understand the major daily challenges of electric vehicle fleet operation and validate the necessity of our charging assistant solution. The interviews have confirmed our hypothesis about difficulties with charging management and represented the customer need for a holistic solution.
The Konetik team elaborated the business model and market access strategy for the AI based charging assistant solution. We examined the legal environment and conducted a risk analysis on the business and technical aspects of the product.
