General Motors has acquired the assets of ALGOLiON Ltd. The Israel-based company is known for its software that uses data from electric vehicle battery management systems to identify anomalies in cell performance. This information helps to ensure proper vehicle health management and provide early detection of battery hazards. GM’s Technology Acceleration and Commercialization (TAC) group, which identifies technologies that could aid GM in their battery development, led the acquisition.
In a recent quote, Gil Golan, vice president of TAC, said, “ALGOLiON has developed cutting edge battery analytics and prediction software that will help General Motors deliver great performing EVs for our customers.”
Niles Fleischer, cofounder of ALGOLiON, added, “The ALGOLiON team is excited to join GM on its track to an all-electric vehicle future. We found the right home for our technology to play an integral role in maintaining healthy batteries for exciting products and reach customers globally.”
