Project

Handicart

The Handicart foundation is an organization that makes it possible for golfers with mobility problems to continue to practice the sport. By means of golf carts, Handicarts, this group remains mobile and they continue to enjoy playing golf. The Foundation is growing fast and obtains more than 760 Handicarts, spread over 113 clubs. To facilitate the management of these golf carts, Evalan has developed an IoT system, MyHandicart, that controls the fleet remotely and guides the rental of the carts successfully.

The problem

Handicart experienced a number of problems that led to this customized IoT solution. The first problem arose during the maintenance of the golf carts, in particular the batteries. Battery quality diminishes over time. During the winter maintenance it was found that 25% of the batteries were not properly charged. These batteries will break within the foreseeable future and must be replaced: a costly affair. Handicart also wanted to keep track of damages and arrange repairs more efficiently. Another important concern was the payment for renting the carts. The way in which a golf club rents out the carts varies considerably, resulting in fluctuations in revenue. We developed remote monitoring solution MyHandicart to solve these problems.

Extra details

Collecting data from Handicarts

The IoT fleet management system collects all kinds of information about the golf carts such as the number of kilometers driven, battery charging cycles, energy consumption and locations. The system displays this in real time and ensures that the Handicart Foundation keeps track of the maintenance of each cart efficiently. As a result, the Foundation extends the lifespan of the carts and prevents unnecessary maintenance costs. During the year, the condition of the batteries is clear and a poor battery can be replaced preventively. By replacing a poor battery during a general maintenance round, they are able to save costs.

Dave Stenfert Kroese, director of Stichting Handicart, says about the collaboration: “The great thing about Evalan is that you are helped exactly where needed and that they find a solution that does not require all kinds of new things to be made. In this way you can switch to the new system much faster and benefit more from IoT and the final result.”
