According to the institute, CoBE will also collaborate with various cell manufacturers from across the world, procure cells and characterise them to create a knowledge centre on available cells, providing industry with valuable data to select appropriate solutions. It will work on developing the next generation of smart battery chargers and Battery Management protocols. By working on the design configurations, and packaging cells into modules differently, optimisation studies on batteries for different lifetime for different applications will be undertaken.
Jalihal said, “The CoBE is carrying out exciting multi-disciplinary research work in several areas related to battery and electric vehicles including battery management systems, battery testing, battery charging and developing national standards for communication between EV and the cloud servers. The CoBE also provides policy inputs to the national Electric Vehicles program. Potentially, the research can lead to greatly reducing India's dependency on imported oil, to reducing environmental pollution, to greater employment opportunities and to global leadership position."

It is very important to score good marks in GATE and what you are going for is AIR 1. You need to relax, eat well, sleep well and have a lot of faith and confidence in what you are doing. Revise as much as possible. Remember, GATE Question patterns do repeat in all years so make yourself through with Previous year Papers. As they say that practice makes the man perfect, so you also need to practice a lot to crack GATE with a high score.
I hope it helped.
All the best.
