News Highlights

  • The technology will help reduce emission & fuel consumption
  • The technology will help to suggest the best drivetrain to the manufacturer
  • Drive cycles developed are not available anywhere else

The Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati has developed a unique technology that will rate the motor and batteries of electric vehicles. Post this, the institute will suggest to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) the best drivetrain components for the Indian scenarios. Furthermore, this method helps to standardize the EVs based on the Indian drive-cycles. 


A team of researchers from the Electric Mobility Laboratory of IIT Guwahati led by Prof. Praveen Kumar, Professor, Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, IIT Guwahati, specifically focused on Indian climatic conditions for both rural and urban areas. The drive cycles developed by them are not only unique but also not available anywhere else. 

“The development in the field of next-generation energy-efficient EV technology is one of the most important breakthroughs required for the sustainable development of the country and to reduce carbon footprint. IIT Guwahati is earnestly working in this direction. This development will augment this process and maximize the outcomes,” as commented by Prof. T. G. Sitharam, Director, IIT Guwahati.

At present, no OEM is using any such technology. This technology will help to create better & more efficient drivetrains based on different regions. The main aim is to reduce emissions and fuel consumption. So if an electronic drivetrain is developed in a humid region then it will not work in a dry NS colder environment. 

“Our goal is to prepare a document that can enable the new entrants into the EV market and help in leveling the playing field. The other primary benefit of this entire exercise is to prepare the next generation of technocrats that are ready for an excellent career in EV technology anywhere in the world,” as commented by  Prof. Praveen Kumar.
