KUKA Charging Assistant wins Robotics Award 2019
The market for e-mobility is growing rapidly and topics such as "autonomous parking" have no longer been fiction. The demand for intelligent charging options is also growing faster.
April 2, 2019
The market share of electric vehicles is rising continuously, and as a result also the demand for automation of the charging process. Intelligent, automated charging technologies are constantly being developed. "As of today, the charging assistant is a comfort mode. If the majority of vehicles are able to park autonomously, the added value of the system becomes clearer," continues Settele. In the future, the driver will be able to get off at the front door and open the garage door by pushing the button, park the car and finally charge it automatically.
For some things you need a little imagination, but sometimes that's what visionary ideas are all about.
