Wejo Group has launched a data-driven platform for electric vehicle charging infrastructure networks.

The North West-headquartered firm is a global leader in cloud and software analytics generated from autonomous vehicle, electric vehicle and connected vehicle data.

Its EV Infrastructure Operating System is a first-of-its-kind, integrated solution for new EV charger site selection and charger network management, built on and available through Palantir Foundry. 

The EV application enables the integration of Wejo’s data alongside an organisation’s proprietary data. The application can be deployed by government agencies, automakers, charging network operators, retailers and more.

When used with Wejo data, the new OS enables organisations to efficiently and effectively plan site placement and operate charging networks by combining real-time vehicle data with their own relevant data, ensuring all their specific needs are accounted for.

Following chargepoint installation, the application’s network operations tools help maximise revenue and increase network reliability. Organisations can manage networks of chargers at scale with tooling that connects to chargers’ IoT sensor data, monitor and improve the performance of individual chargers.

“With Wejo data in this application, organisations all over the world will be able to unlock, visualise and understand the full picture of EV demand and customer potential within the context of their own offering and circumstances,” said Richard Barlow, CEO of Wejo, which was third on our TransportTech 50 ranking before Christmas.

“Wejo’s billions of connected vehicle data points can highlight journey paths, fuel types and movement patterns, providing exactly what organizations need when setting up for EV operations.”

The platform also supports Wejo data in a manner that integrates with other third-party data: for example, a retailer could prioritise stores that have high or low basket values to encourage more EV traffic around the priority market. 

“Wejo’s continued commitment to enabling the future of mobility is matched only by its ever-increasing ambition,” said Shyam Sankar, Palantir’s COO. 

“The speed with which they are building and delivering new software products atop Palantir Foundry is enabling players along the entire mobility value chain – from automakers, to charging network operators, to regulators – to create meaningful value at a tremendous pace.”
