Samsung Electronics and IoTecha Corp. have announced a strategic collaboration to introduce a new range of electric vehicle charging stations. The new sites combine Samsung display and signage solutions with IoTecha EV charging technology.
“We believe that together, Samsung and IoTecha provide a cost-effective platform delivering fast and smart EV charging service and integrated in kiosks that bring visually dynamic interfaces with services, including IoTecha IoT.ON and Samsung MagicInfo with programmatic advertising,” said Kim Sarubbi, VP of Media at IoTecha Corp.
Samsung and IoTecha have created a comprehensive EV charging kiosk solution featuring Samsung OH series touch screens and IoTecha Level 2 charging components. The integration of hardware and software addresses key challenges affecting deployment of both EV charging and digital signage infrastructure, from cost and complexity of equipment, installation, and operation, to remote monitoring, management, and maintenance.
The resulting platform is expected to open up new driver and customer experiences for a wide range of commercial customers, including retail and hospitality, and enable new business models and revenue streams for digital signage and EV charging network providers.
“We believe that Samsung and IoTecha business models and technologies combine perfectly to rapidly bring to market a brand new, visual, engaging and optimised EV charging experience. Samsung and IoTecha are looking forward to delivering highly customised services and content that meet and exceed customer requirements and unlocking new revenue streams for both site hosts and service providers,” said Chris Mertens, Vice President of US Sales, Samsung Display Division.
Complete kiosks can be customised for white label branding to match retail, hospitality, business, and other commercial area deployments that feature printed decals or wraps. Each unit supports Plug and Charge services and interactive displays for programmatic advertising, customer information, service offers, personalised messages, and more.
