Automotive Research Association of India has developed indigenous and India specific cost effective technology solution for Energy/Battery Management system. This Intelligent energy management system ‘ARAI-eMi4‘ is a complete software and hardware platform comprising of advanced algorithms for energy management and an automotive compliant hardware to interface with the energy source. 

The system software and hardware is designed to accommodate a wide range of lithium ion battery chemistries. The algorithm is designed to monitor Current, voltage and temperature of the cells in the battery pack. It further calculates and estimates 4 important states of the energy source (SOC, SOH, SOP, and SOS) using advanced estimation methods. The software and hardware platform so developed is scalable and provides flexibility to end users with master/slave topology, which allows multiple units to be connected together to support up to 800 VDC systems. The hardware is designed with highest levels of safety using automotive-grade components. The UI Platform is equipped with customizable diagnostic software via CAN and serial interface which manages pack diagnostics, data logging, and provides rapid parameter modification and firmware upgrades.
