Cobasys and Motorola Partnering on Hybrid Battery Control Systems

Cobasys and Motorola have agreed to cooperate in the development and manufacture of battery control system components for hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) battery systems.

The hybrid battery pack controller, which integrates Motorola-designed hardware with Cobasys patent-pending software, will monitor and control the hybrid battery pack and also perform diagnostics for Cobasys’ advanced Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery system.

Cobasys, a joint venture between Chevron Technology Ventures and Energy Conversion Devices, designs and manufactures advanced Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery system solutions for transportation markets, including HEV, Electric Vehicles (EV) and 42-volt applications, in addition to mobile poer systems for other markets.

In June, Cobasys received an order from Denver Regional Transportation District (RTD) to convert ten hybrid buses from lead acid batteries to their Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery system solution. The buses are part of a fleet of mall shuttle buses that operate on compressed natural gas (CNG) in a hybrid-electric configuration. (Earlier post.)
