Over the years, autos and tempos have been the cheapest mode of short-distance transport throughout India. The pollution concern and sustainable development lifted the market demand for E-Rickshaw serving the same purpose. E rickshaws are an alternative to auto rickshaws and hand-pulled ones as they have low fuel costs and less human effort. These new-age battery-operated E-Rickshaws are the vehicle leaders for a better future. What is the first electric Rickshaw in your city/town? E-Rickshaw could be a low-emitter transport for the low-income group if it has a sturdy and robust battery. Today we are going to list down the 5 most affordable E-Rickshaw Batteries.Continue reading “5 most affordable E-Rickshaw batteries in India”
How Charzer is leveraging AI for locating nearest charging points?
Charzer aims to find the most optimal location to install its charging stations which will best serve our customers and enable quick and fast charging. As part of this process, we have to determine the most optimal route between the customer and the charging station when they search for the nearest Charzer station on their Charzer app.
In order to recommend the most optimal charging station to our customers, we have tried a number of machine learning techniques. We were able to create an optimal route to traverse the road segment by taking into account the traffic which is influenced by time, weather, and real-life events using a partitioning algorithm based novel approach mentioned in this article published by Ankit Sirmorya in HighScalability, a widely read publication.
To accomplish this, he modeled every intersection as a node and every road segment as a directed edge. For finding the shortest route between source and destination, he used routing algorithms (e.g. Dijkstra’s algorithm). He also highlighted that for ride hailing platforms at the scale at which they operate, Dijkstra’s algorithm won’t work because it takes O(NlgN) to find the shortest path for “N” nodes. A novel approach Ankit proposed was to divide the graph into partitions, precalculate the best path within each partition, and interact only with the boundaries within each partition. His approach significantly reduced the time complexity from O(NlgN) to O(N’lgN’), where N’ is the square root of N. After the optimal route has been determined, traffic, weather, and real-life events can be taken into account to calculate the estimated time to traverse the road segment and compute the ETA. A few other alternative techniques were also tried to find the optimal route, and some experiments were conducted to assess their performance. By using a partitioning algorithm approach, we discovered that the optimal route we found for our customers took 40% less distance and resulted in a 30% increase in their satisfaction ratings. To improve the experience of our customers, we continuously explore new technologies and experiment with new approaches.
Top 5 hybrid electric vehicles in India – 2022
Electric Vehicle is new technology to reduce the carbon footprint from the environment. Even the best BEVs available in India right now have a range of 300-500 km, and if there isn’t ample public charging infrastructure support, users of BEVs can face range anxiety. Hybrid Electric Vehicles don’t have any such issues – on short distances. Presently automobile lovers are preferring to shift to a hybrid alternative than an electric alternative for their IC engine cars. The main reason being the EV charging infrastructure still under development. So let’s take a look into the best Hybrid car options available in India. I will list the top 5 hybrid electric vehicles that you can buy in India.Continue reading “Top 5 hybrid electric vehicles in India – 2022”
