TRAINING RIG PROVIDES SAFE PRACTICE FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLE MECHANICS

The electric vehicle market is growing at a record pace, and in its wake, a major shortage of certified vehicle technicians is emerging. 

Analysis shows that in the UK alone, there will be a shortfall of 30 000 certified electric vehicle technicians by 2035. Similar figures are found in all countries committed to electrifying transport. 

AdaptFuture has developed a portable training rig that could be part of the solution. The rig sends out real traction voltage but almost no current. A simple but brilliant idea that makes it possible to train on servicing electric vehicles without risk to life and health.

Convenient and smart solution

FITS IN A CASE

The rig fits in a case that easily fits in the back of a car or on a conference table, meaning trainers can get to those who need training, instead of the other way around. Suddenly, training - and by extension, certification - becomes both more accessible and less costly. 

HANDY CONTROLLER

The 'brain' of the rig is a very handy controller, fully digital, with no switches or buttons and controlled via an app. The controller is designed so that it can also be integrated into any real vehicle. This means that the training will feel and look very similar to 'live mode'. 

Infotiv asked the necessary questions, carried out the necessary work and reported when required.

Technical validation

Infotiv has had several roles in the project: in technical validation and in creating the information used in the certification sessions.

Magnus de Canesie at Infotiv describes a collaboration that worked very well, where Infotiv contributed by validating the functionality of the training rig to match the systems in a real electric vehicle.

Extensive experience in validation

- AdaptFuture has a clear objective and the product has a technical weight that fits Infotiv well. Our strength in this context is solid knowledge and experience of real electric vehicles, different working methods, troubleshooting, service and safety. The fact that the validation is done correctly is a strong argument to convince partners and customers to use the product. Of course, we also look forward to being involved in further development," says Magnus.

Information design
and learning

Infotiv's Malin Wranå has developed the communication and information materials needed for training and certification. Her long experience in technology information has played a key role in this part of the project. 

Grasp of tonality and technical standards

- Linguistic tonality is important, as well as familiarization with the technical standards available. The result is the design of the certification exam questions and communication materials to instruct and train the certification exam takers.

Infotiv has also been behind AdaptFuture and supported in the dialogues with RISE and with the industry in general. For a relatively new player like AdaptFuture, it is important to have stable and loyal partners. 

- The fact that AdaptFuture chooses to hire us for more parts of the project is a good testament to the collaboration, says Malin.

Infotiv has the right expertise and can be impartial. They did a very honest analysis of the optimal functioning of the rig. It went well!

Infotiv impartial and with the right skills

AdaptFuture wanted a second opinion from an independent party to ensure that the rig's components and functions are optimally configured. The choice fell on Infotiv, for several reasons.

- Infotiv has the right expertise and can be impartial. They did a very honest analysis of the optimal functioning of the rig. It went well! Infotiv asked the questions that were needed, did the work that was needed and reported when needed," says Niclas Ericsson at AdaptFuture.
