This was explained in this thread:So, what are you developing? Is it a chip? Is it a software patch? What happens when Fisker releases an official software update? What are we looking at from a "product" notion?
From my understanding Fisker does not own the SW necessary to do any of these modifications aka VCM, HCU etc so they must depend on suppliers to do the work and implement the changes. Furthermore some of these functions are not possible due to a legacy hardware limitation within the vehicle itself. There are major limitations compared to where ECU's have went as the architecture is 8-9 years old. Our product is an ECU that was developed and recently licensed to a major OEM. We are applying a similar type of technology to the Karma. It will be plug and play and allow for updates if the customer so desires. Initially we will have a few features baked in and will be adding features every few months based on user feedback. We also plan on releasing higher capacity battery packs (subscribers on our mailing list got a sneak peak of that a few weeks ago) and this module is necessary for that modification. Can't say too much more than that. Hopefully that answered your question.The solution presented in the video is actually an upgradeable plug and play hardware solution that is completely different than the previous Quantum (HCU) implementation of charging on the fly.
You're doing a **** of a job piquing our interest! I'm anxious for details: When? How? How Much? I suspect I'll just have to be patientWe also plan on releasing higher capacity battery packs (subscribers on our mailing list got a sneak peak of that a few weeks ago) and this module is necessary for that modification.
