Bescom app to help e-vehicle owners locate charging stations, Auto News, ET Auto

Bengaluru: Bescom is working on a mobile app, which can help electric vehicle (EV) owners to locate their nearest charging stations, said officials.

They pointed out that it is likely to be ready before the inauguration of city’s 12 EV charging stations in June.

The app will also help sort charging stations according to the distance, types of charging and book slots online for charging, added Bescom (Bangalore Electricity Supply Company Ltd) officials.

Bescom is also developing a central management system software based on Internet of Things (IoT) technology to remotely monitor the utilisation and availability of EV charging stations across the city, said officials.
