The Smart-LiB project, a joint project between IMS CHIPS and the Innovationsallianz Baden-WÃ¼rttemberg (innbw) partner ZSW, was launched on October 1st, 2015, and is set to last until September 30th, 2016. This project is designed to research solutions to encompass the Li ion battery stapleÂ´s condition without the currently required wiring (SoH â€“ State of Health, SoC â€“ State of Charge).
The decentralized or mobile storage of electrical energy using batteries is a key technology for the 21st century energy supply. Lithium ion cells are core elements in modern hybrid and electric power since they are crucial to costs, operating distance and reliability of a vehicle. This makes the lithium ion technology a strategic element for the automobile industry in the future.
