Home / Brand Stories / Bacancy Introduces IONDASH: IOT-Based Battery Management Platform

Bacancy, a leading BMS manufacturer in India is all set to introduce IONDASH, the most advanced cloud IoT battery lifecycle monitoring platform for the EV market. IONDASH - BMS cloud analytics platform employs AI/ML and it has advanced telematics to manage the BMS portfolio for hardware devices. This IoT-based cloud platform is designed to ensure its users a 100% safe, secured EV experience and extend the Li-ion battery lifecycle enhancing the EV performance.


The EV battery pack accounts for 50% of the total cost of owning the vehicle, which makes the EV experience directly proportional to the viability of the lithium-ion batteries.


The average service life of Li-ion batteries used in the EV market is between 8-10 years, which is around 500 to 1,000 charge cycles. The mileage assurance given by EV battery manufacturers is usually between 1,00,000 and 1,60,000 kilometers.


Recently, we have witnessed multiple scenarios of E-bikes catching fire, mostly during standby conditions. On further analysis, it was found that the majority of the battery fires have been due to short circuits caused by improper cell balancing and fluctuating current. Such a significant rise in temperature causes ‘thermal runaway’ and deteriorates the battery life, since the battery cell temperature goes beyond 100°C causing catastrophes such as EV fires in some cases.

The battery management system (BMS) is the right solution to prevent such types of incidents and sudden catastrophes.  A smart battery management system enables accurate sensing and deploys cloud technologies for effective cell monitoring and passive load balancing.

The latest EV battery swapping policy draft dated 20th April’22 highlights the need to ensure that the battery is safe and assets are secured. The swappable batteries will employ modern technologies like IoT-based battery management systems. Additional capabilities include remote monitoring, tracking, immobilization capabilities, and other necessary features for control and battery protection.

Bacancy’s Cloud platform- IONDASH enables mobility fleet owners like Joy E-Bike to deliver a flawless experience for its customers. The cloud platform helps in scaling up the monitoring activity for large size/multiple BMS and provides real-time visualization to the vehicle owners and battery manufacturers. 


IONDASH utilizes this data to optimize the recharging process per cycle. The software system is self-driven in creating the room to increase battery life. Moreover, it provides drivers with suggestions tailored as per their driving behavior on how the battery power can be optimized. The cloud BMS platform provides a sophisticated web-based user interface for analyzing the data acquired from BMS hardware, depending on the EV battery pack’s real-time status such as SoC/SoH, and temperature.


This BMS software is a market-ready, full-stack battery monitoring system and an intelligent SaaS platform solution. 


While sharing something about IONDASH, Mr. Hardik Sheth (CEO-Bacancy Systems) says,

“IONDASH platform is built keeping in mind the triple S’s

  1. Selection (based on design, cell selection, and thermal management).
  2. Safety (Cell balancing, Internal temperature, voltage, and current).
  3. Sanity (factors that are user-controlled such as location tracking and remote monitoring), which impact battery life the most."



The BMS software combines and analyzes the data from these three sources, incorporating secured remote monitoring to safeguard the EV battery pack. The IONDASH users can easily navigate through the interactive user interface (UI) which displays relevant information like battery pack status, location, and temperature state. Equipped with the GPS system, the IoT-based battery management system detects precise geo-coordinates and shows the exact location on the IONDASH web portal.


Mr. Krunal Patel (CTO-Bacancy Systems) says,

“We are on a mission to aid companies to make data-driven decisions and reduce the downtime involved in performing computations. IONDASH is all set to disrupt the battery market with advanced data-driven visualization implementing AI/ML and cloud technologies. The cloud BMS reveals reliable and secured insights for scaling the battery monitoring models for the EV ecosystem."
