Question
Dear ZZ

Is it possible to design a electronic panel for the Automotive Battery indicating the current life - charged status level to the automobile driver?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
The vehicle manufacturers have beat you to it.  Each automobile has an alternator produces charging current to the battery and a voltage regulating system that keeps the battery constantly charged to full capacity.  

Further, automobiles that do not have a meter or indicator on the dash panel have an emergency warning system that brings up a warning light to the driver that the battery or charging system has failed or needs servicing.  

This has been the case for many years now in the automobile design field.
