An intelligent embedded system is called a battery management system (BMS). It makes sure the battery pack is safely charged, keeps track of the battery pack’s wellbeing, and increases battery life through cell balancing.
Electric vehicles frequently use rechargeable lithium-ion (Li-ion) and lithium-iron-phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries (EVs).In order to maximise battery performance and reduce potential failures, it also keeps an eye on temperature, voltage, and current. Each battery type has advantages and disadvantages as well as particular charging requirements.
A highly challenging design task is presented by managing these many criteria while also keeping track of the BMS’s effectiveness and health.
The Global Electric motorcycle Battery management system market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The first electric motorcycle with a manual transmission launched in India by Matter. The new Matter electric motorcycle comes equipped with a 5kWh power pack called matter Energy 1.0, which houses the battery pack, the battery management system, the drive train unit, power conversion modules, and other protection systems.
It is the first liquid-cooled electric two-wheeler battery pack in India and is equipped with a number of unique innovations, such as the integrated intelligent thermal management system (IITMS), which employs active liquid cooling technology.
The electric motorcycle has a propulsion system called matterDrive 1.0 that combines an electric motor with a manual gearbox made by Matter. The drivetrain’s performance range is increased when the 10.5kW electric motor is combined with the custom sequential manual transmission.
Through a single socket, the new Matter electric motorcycle is compatible with both slow and fast charging. The matterCharge 1.0 onboard 1kW intelligent charger is a standard feature of the vehicle. With overcharge protection, the onboard charger can fully charge the car in under five hours.
A translucent shroud, an exposed spinner attached to the engine, a body-integrated front turn signal, a bi-functional LED projector headlight, split LED tail lamp, and more are all included in the electric motorcycle’s equipment. Also included are built-in lights and a connection for charging mobile devices. With 4G connectivity, there is a 7-inch touch instrument cluster.
The connected smartphone application allows for seamless integration of car functions, including remote lock/unlock, geofencing, live position tracking, and vehicle health monitoring. It also gives the rider customised ride statistics, charge status, and push notifications.

By leveraging Gogoro’s established battery infrastructure and Yamaha’s design and manufacturing capabilities, the collaboration aims to accelerate the adoption of electric two-wheelers in various global markets.
The Matter electric motorcycle is anticipated to cost between lakhs. A power pack called matter-energy, which is installed in the new Matter electric motorcycle, houses the battery pack, the battery management system, the drive train unit, the power conversion modules, and other safety features. It boasts several unique technologies, including the integrated intelligent thermal management system (IITMS), the first liquid-cooled electric two-wheeler battery pack in India. IITMS uses active liquid cooling technology.
The Matter Drive propulsion system for the electric motorcycle combines an electric motor with the Matter hyper-shift manual gearbox. The drivetrain’s performance range is increased when the electric motor and exclusive sequential manual transmission are combined. Faster heat removal from the electric motor is made possible by the innovative liquid cooling technique, which simultaneously cools the rotor and stator.
Once Ecobodaa had discovered a suitable electric motorcycle, a pilot program was started in several areas of Nairobi to gather feedback on the machine’s performance as well as useful information from important players in the Kenyan boda boda industry.
