Design, architecture and development of lightweight rechargeable battery technologies
Rechargeable Lithium Sulfur batteries have a wide range of applications due to their light weight, high gravimetric energy density and inherent safety. Currently, OXIS Energy is targeting the Electric Vehicle (EV), Defence, and Aviation battery markets to introduce this technology.
Once Li-S batteries are proven in these markets and the volumetric energy density has been further improved, then Lithium Sulfur batteries will be ideal for incorporation into small, personal devices such as mobile phones and computers.
QWIC is currently developing the WESP, an innovative electric scooter specifically designed for the urban environment. The OXIS batteries will be integrated into the WESP scooter in 2014. This will provide the consumer with significantly longer travelling distances per charge, and be user-friendly, practical and safe. QWIC’s innovative electrical bicycles are distributed to around 350 shops in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France.
INDUCT Modulgo Urban Car
OXIS batteries will power a revolutionary new car created by Induct in France. The Modulgo is a low cost urban electric vehicle designed from telematics technology offering advanced car sharing solutions.
The parking automatically makes MODULGO available to users from an Internet reservation, a Smartphone or a touch screen terminal at the entrance. On their return, the driver leaves the MODULGO at the parking entrance. The automatic parking system parks MODULGO and manages the charging and the provision for a new user. The parking is equipped with sensors and takes robotic control of MODULGO. The central application software controls the parking, monitors battery cycles and usage of all MODULGO vehicles on the site.
The MODULGO was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2011 and OXIS batteries will power it in 2013.
Cybergo is a driverless 8 passenger robotized shuttle, design for transportation in city centres. Its design brings out new technologies in robotics applied to the automobile. Ideal for pedestrian areas or private campuses, such as airport parking, shopping malls, business parks, and universities, Cybergo can provide an on-demand, personalized transportation solution in areas that existing transportation cannot reach.
Cybergo is equipped with laser range finders, cameras and a software
package developed by INDUCT that allows it to move autonomously
and safely in any environment.
OXIS batteries will power the Cybergo in 2014.
Engbo Marine Propulsion System
Engbo is developing the world’s 1st commercial electric propulsion system with specially designed high efficiency motors and new innovative bus based control systems which will include batteries incorporating the Polymer Lithium Sulfur cells and Battery Management System, developed by OXIS. The inherently-safe battery technology is a vital element for electric marine propulsion and will be integrated into boats for launch in 2014.
OXIS is developing a Polymer Lithium Sulfur battery system for Wisper bikes for the European markets. This will provide cyclists with greater travelling distance per charge and more safely.
Wisper is considered one of the front runners in progressive innovation and design of electric bikes. Wisper bikes are currently available in more than twenty countries, with diverse users such as The City of London Police and Dominos Pizza. The Wisper OXIS brand of electric bike is Wisper's latest and most exciting project,
and is targeted for launch into the world market in 2013.
