OnSiteGo’s Report Citing industry source Yogesh Brar, it has been claimed that Ola is working on its own mapping service. As we mentioned, Ola currently provides navigation and mapping based on data from MapmyIndia, and this feature is used in Move OS 2.0, which is available on some Ola S1 Pro electric scooter models under beta testing. However, the company is planning to release this OS to more and more Ola electric scooters next month.
The report says that Ola will initially use MapmyIndia as the map supplier for its navigation and electric bikes, but that is expected to change when additional models are added to its product portfolio. Certainly, Ola Electric is following in the footsteps of Tesla Motors, another leading EV manufacturer based in the US.
With its own mapping service, Ola can instantly update its charging stations, current working status of chargers, service centers and experience places. This can help add data points to the map, which the Tesla team uses to train its vehicles for better on-road performance.
Rushlane’s accordingOla’s mapping service will not be included in the upcoming Move OS 2.0 update. The update could be ready for public roll out by the end of June. Move OS 2.0 could bring features such as music playback, navigation, smartphone connectivity, new Eco mode and keyless locking/unlocking via connected phone. Cruise control feature will also be added in future updates.
