March 18, 2008: BATSO Workshop, Hsinchu

On this day the BATSO 01 Manual was released and the project reached an important milestone on the way towards safer batteries used in LEVs. 44-page document was presented to industry representatives in detail. On a guided tour, the testing laboratory was shown to the participants. Within the next few months, this testing lab will be modified in a way that BATSO tests can be executed to full extend.
