Autonomous robots for charging electric vehicles by Volkswagen

Sooner or later electric vehicles will flood the roads of developed countries, which will inevitably create the need to build more charging stations and may give birth to a problem due to limited positions and long hours required, at least with current data.‎

For this reason, ‎‎Volkswagen proposes an alternative‎‎ that could ‎‎reduce the costs needed to build the charging stations‎‎ and ‎‎eliminate the dedicated parking spaces.‎‎ It is a ‎‎special robot‎‎ that can be ‎‎placed in any conventional car parking lot and used for charging electric vehicles.‎

According to, ‎‎each robot includes all equipment for charging an electric vehicle and can move autonomously in the parking lot. After the driver parks in any position, he can ‎‎call the robot-charger via the separate application for smartphones or from his vehicle screen‎‎. The ‎‎robot activates itself, finds itself the position of the vehicle that needs charging, asks wirelessly from the vehicle to open the socket outlet and then connects its portable battery‎‎. Then it ‎‎returns to its position and waits until the vehicle is fully charged to disconnect and collect the portable battery‎‎.‎

This whole ‎‎process is done without any human intervention‎‎. The ‎‎robot is equipped with a multitude of sensors, cameras and scanners that allow it to move autonomously within a parking lot‎‎, without touching other vehicles, whether they are stopped or moving. The ‎‎portable batteries carry a capacity of 25 kWh and the charging speed reaches a maximum of 50 KW‎‎.‎

‎An interesting and very practical solution for the future of electric vehicles.‎
