As electric vehicles (EVs) gain traction, Honeywell introduces safety solutions for both EV manufacturing and usage. Their lithium-ion battery safety sensors detect potential battery fires, ensuring driver safety. Moreover, their personal protective equipment (PPE) and gas detection tools protect EV plant workers.

Last year, over 10 million EVs were sold globally, emphasizing their role in sustainable travel. Sarah Martin, president of Honeywell Sensing & Safety Technologies, feels that safety is paramount even in the pursuit of sustainability, and these solutions ensure the safe production and operation of EVs, propelling the future of transportation.

India’s EV market is booming, with a projected 49% CAGR from 2022 to 2030. The country aims for a 30% EV market share by 2030. Notably, over half of India’s three-wheeler registrations last year were electric, and the electric two-wheeler market could reach USD 6161 Million by 2030.

The global demand for gigafactories, large battery and EV production plants, is rising. In India alone, this sector might require an additional 10 million direct jobs and 50 million related jobs by 2030.

However, this growth brings safety challenges. Li-ion batteries, which power EVs, can occasionally undergo “thermal runaway,” leading to severe electrical fires. Battery assembly workers also face hazards like hand injuries, chemical exposure, and potential electrocution.

Honeywell’s battery safety sensors, designed for electric scooters, detect thermal runaway risks, ensuring compliance with international safety standards. In collaboration with Nexceris, Honeywell is innovating sensors to detect early signs of thermal runaway in batteries, preventing property damage and potential injuries.

To address the risks in battery production, Honeywell provides electrical safety equipment, gas detection devices, and PPE, including gloves, face shields, and dielectric boots for high-risk tasks.

With the rising popularity of EVs and electric scooters in India, the government has set new safety guidelines. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways in India now requires EVs to give an advance warning five minutes before a potentially hazardous situation inside the vehicle due to thermal runaway.
