The batteries of the future have an indisputable ally that will improve their quality in multiple aspects
This is a very interesting step in this type of technology

So far, the focus of scientific research and development on batteries is to make them larger and with greater capacity. However, Artificial Intelligence could hold the unexpected key to solving the capacity and performance problems that batteries have given us so far. Thus, this technology may be able to mark the future and the present of technology.

A truly remarkable leap in quality

Eatron, a company specializing in battery longevity, in cooperation with Syntiant, have announced on the former’s blog an interesting AI-powered battery management system that can change things as we know them so far. The system, known as AI-BMS-on-chip, is capable of providing 10% more battery life by being able to manage it more efficiently while extending its useful life by up to 25%.

So much so that it would go from between 500-1000 charge cycles to 625-1250 cycles, a change that involves quite a few days of use.

We are talking, therefore, that the batteries will have on average a longevity of up to a quarter more than usual at the same time that it will also last longer. Where’s the catch? In the efficient management of AI and in the analysis it makes of the battery’s state of health. It seems that, until now, this system was not as efficient as one would expect, something that was also the case with the state of charge. However, optimizing these parameters has been able to reach a very desirable destination point for all those who often carry the charger on our backs.

To achieve all this, it uses Syntiant’s NDP120 Neural Decision Processor to carry out a real-time analysis of the battery and determine its real effectiveness range. This technology allows it to be integrated into current battery applications in the consumer electronics that we buy in stores every day. Therefore, it is a very interesting step and one that can open the door to making a leap in quality to batteries that we did not have until now.

At the moment, the sector in which the most attention is being paid to the efficiency of batteries is in electric vehicles, since so far they are not as efficient as expected. Vehicles do not manage to go as far as consumers demand, so any technology that allows them to extend their life on the road is really welcome and welcome. In addition, as this system is integrated directly into the battery, it means that we do not have any connectivity problems or signal delay, making it truly functional.

We have been seeing more and more technologies to improve batteries for many years now. Every day there is more and more talk of truly futuristic technologies, such as the water battery and even the nuclear battery that promises hundreds of years of life. Others, more humble in their beginnings, could be the obvious replacement of the current ones, as is the case of sodium-ion batteries.
