As a part of the smart energy solutions, Asema works extensively in making algorithms for better charging of electric vehicles. This includes for instance planning the schedule of charging so that it optimizes locally available enegy from charging station solar panels and batteries compared to the price of energy bought from the grid.
With the smart phone application capabilities of Asema IoT Central, drivers can be engaged in such optimization programs. The apps support finding the optimal charging location and turn-by-turn instructions that help in finding the spot in time.
Smart parking is the process of automatically tracking the availability of parking spots and guiding drivers intelligently to free spaces. Tracking of the parking spots takes place with various technologies, including camera surveillange, magnetic sensors in the ground, and RFID tags in the cars.
Asema's software solutions include interfaces that make it possible to integrate such sensors into the software flexibly, map interfaces that visualize the current state of the parking spots, statistical tools for analyzing the historical data, and mobile interfaces for opening the system for users.
City bikes are popular in many metropolitan areas nowadays and are taken into use increasingly in new places. Managing a fleet of bicycles requires automation that in many ways resembles that of parking space management. This includes tracking the time each bike is in use (as opposed to the time a car is parked), ensuring availability of bikes in key locations of the city, and monitoring the congestion of bike stations.
Asema's software solutions can be used to create bike sharing systems for models where bikes are stored at bike stations and for ad hoc bike sharing where the bikes can be parked anywhere around the city.
