Gogoro launches SSmartcore, new technology platform for electric two-wheel vehicles
Gogoro, the global technology leader in battery swapping ecosystems, announced that a new technology platform called ‘SSmartcore’ is being introduced in the new Gogoro SuperSport electric scooter.
This new technology will also be available to its Powered By Gogoro Network vehicle partners later this year.
“As an industry leader and innovator, Gogoro is committed to introducing fundamental new technologies that set the stage for intelligent two-wheeled vehicle innovation from Gogoro and our partners,” said Horace Luke, Founder, President and CEO of Gogoro.
“Gogoro’s ‘SSmartcore’ technology platform enables a variety of new user experiences and features that are available today on the new Gogoro Supersport smartscooter and will be available to all our vehicle partners in the future.”
SSmartcore Technology Platform
Developed exclusively by Gogoro, SSmartcore provides high-speed computing power with an open expandable architecture that improves processing speed and Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and Engine Control Unit (MCU) connectivity, increasing memory, remote monitoring distance and I/O Control.
The SSmartcore platform provides three times the computing power available in Gogoro’s current Smartscooters, enabling a new generation of intelligent two-wheeled vehicles.
“SSmartcore enables enhanced safety features such as a new generation of integrated traction control, enhanced user features such as more responsive throttle control, and enables built-in LTE connectivity for over-the-air updates and other location-based functionality,” said Luke .
The ‘Precision Power Response’
The SSmartcore system allows the digital engine and throttle to integrate with the rest of Gogoro’s iQ system and sensors to provide more accurate engine control and real-time power calibration to provide intelligent traction control.
Users gain greater safety and control, as well as access to custom settings to fine-tune vehicle performance and riding style. Additionally, SSmartcore power enables Gogoro’s new active cruise control.
With SSmartcore, Gogoro is integrating LTE wireless connectivity for the first time. LTE connectivity offers passengers a new level of remote control, access and awareness of their vehicle, including 24/7 active alerts, locking/unlocking, trunk opening and real-time location. In addition, it allows for even more accurate real-time diagnostics and system status.
Utilizing the power of the SSmartcore platform, Gogoro has developed a new integrated traction control system (TCS), the world’s first digital traction control system for electric two-wheel vehicles.
SSmartCore’s updated computing capabilities monitor wheel rotation against engine power on a millisecond basis, detecting any loss of grip and instantly adjusting torque output until traction is regained.
The new Gogoro SuperSport electric scooter is the first to be equipped with SSmartcore, improving overall responsiveness and computing performance and adding Gogoro’s new traction control system, LTE wireless connectivity services and other cutting-edge technologies that include: 7.6 kW of power, acceleration from 0-50 km/h in 3.9 seconds and FLO DRIVE™ Sport.
