SmartIQ focuses on the development and manufacturing of modular battery systems and high performance drives for nautical applications.
Zero emissions - Innovation - Performance. SmartIQ stands for more than just replacing the combustion engine with an electric motor. E-mobility requires innovative ideas and space-saving solutions for energy storage. The technology company smart IQ focuses on the development and production of modular battery systems and high-performance drives for nautical applications. Our main focus is on our modular battery system, for the nautical sector. Compatible and modular - with our battery system, we want to fully exploit the potential of electrification and digitalization, according to the current state of the art, and thus contribute to making both private and public water transport more efficient and environmentally friendly. Internal combustion engines are an extreme threat to the environment, besides generating a lot of noise. Since lakes and rivers are an important part of the ecosystem whose impact must be kept to a minimum, a " rethinking" should take place in the area of boating, as is also the case with the increasing electrification in road traffic. Since the range of applications for battery modules between micro- and e-mobility as well as automotive is very large and growing every year, we will also be offering battery solutions for other sectors of e- and micro-mobility in the future.
In addition to the development of modular battery systems, we offer complete "plug and play" drive system solutions for different types of boats. The "Plug and Play" propulsion systems for the nautical sector are "retrofittable", which means that leisure-, transport- and sport-boats of various designs and manufacturers can be conveniently equipped or retrofitted with our systems. Our innovation is the first solution to offer a uniform, scalable and at the same time high-performance drive train for the electrification of motor boats of all types and manufacturers. Finally, it should be mentioned that both safety and efficiency can only be guaranteed if all components are ideally matched to each other.
The drive system is operated via the control software specially developed by smartIQ, which is strongly geared towards usability and safety in addition to state-of-the-art features. Thanks to the Iot (Internet of Things) connection, relevant user data such as battery status or location are transmitted to the boat owner via an app, and personalized user profiles can be created as well. Since a boat is usually used across generations or is generally rented out hourly or daily, the use of the boat can be personalized and thus, for example, only selected people can be given 100% access to the drive power. For example, the power can be limited if a comparatively inexperienced driver steers the boat. The software also recognizes risk situations and makes it almost impossible for the driver to cause accidents. In case of certain mistakes, such as approaching a swimmer incorrectly, the software will stop the driver in time.
SmartIQ contributes to making both private and public water transport more efficient and environmentally friendly. Our innovation is the first solution that produces an electrified drive train while maintaining a holistic view. Due to the variable applicability, numerous types and manufacturers of motor boats can use the concept and contribute positively to the environment by switching to green energy.
