Guwahati, April 4: After several incidents of electronic vehicles catching fire in India following the heat waves surfaced online, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati has come up with a technology that rates the motors and batteries of electric vehicles (EV) and suggests to original equipment manufacturers (OEM) the best drivetrain components for the Indian scenario.

As per reports, IIT Guwahati has developed a unique method that standardises the electronic vehicles based on Indian drive-cycles.

An electronic drivetrain consists of a group of components that delivers power to the drive wheels. The drivetrains developed may vary in different climatic environment. Therefore, the OEMs right now are considering creating standard drive cycles for Indian conditions.

The institute states that researchers have not considered Indian drive-cycles and the EVs available in the market do not take into account the different climatic conditions in India.

In a statement the institute said, "Currently, no OEM uses this technology and they have been requesting the drive-cycle data of Indian vehicles. This research hopes to create better and more efficient drivetrains based on different regions. This is also beneficial for startups. This research aims to reduce emissions and reduce fuel consumption,"

The research team at IIT Guwahati led by Praveen Kumar, Professor, at the varsity's Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering focused on Indian climatic conditions and developed the method to suggest the best drivetrain to manufacture.

The researchers are also working to develop this technology for four-wheelers also as the current project focuses exclusively on two-wheelers.
