Flumen replaces human control with machine powered automatic control. People need to plug in, then leave the scheduling and charging management to Flumen's Back office system.
Flumen's cloud based central system receives charging reservations, calculates the optimal charging schedule, and controls the output of the charging stations (which cars are charged, in which order, and how much power they get).
The charging schedule considers a lot of parameters: the technical parameters of the cars, the planned routes, the environmental characteristics, the arrival and departure times, the enterprise priorities, the available power at the distribution panel, the electricity price changes, etc.
This central system needs information and rules to calculate the best charging schedule, and charge the vehicles as much as they need to fulfil their next routes. It can be feed with necessary data by enterprise systems (fleet management, route management, energy management, Outlook, etc.), and by mobile app (for ad hoc charging reservations).
