Robotic stations will charge electric cars in the parking lot

Robotic charging stations can solve the problem of charging electric vehicles in conventional parking lots. This will prevent the creation of special parking spaces for electric cars.

Despite rapid development, the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles is still in the early stages of construction. Drivers have to look for recharging points, of which there are not enough at the moment, and their absence is particularly obvious in ordinary parking lots.

Robotic charging stations on wheels can help solve the problem. They will sit quietly in the corner of a garage or parking lot until someone calls them via a mobile app to a specific location.

Mobile robotic charging stations are a convenient alternative to stationary charging stations. Their implementation will prevent the need to create special parking spaces for electric vehicles. The station itself will reach the correct location on demand.

Several companies already offer similar solutions. The most perfect is the Chinese Envision station. Not only does she find the owner of the electric car, but she also connects the charging cable herself using a robotic arm.

Seattle-based startup Autev offers a simpler solution that is significantly cheaper and can solve the problem of charging electric vehicles in open parking lots. It’s a big battery on wheels that can go to the right place when called from a mobile app.

The driver must remove the charging cable from the station and connect it to the electric vehicle by himself. A fully charged station is enough for six electric vehicles, after which the station itself will start recharging, and quickly.

Autev promises commercial deliveries of robotic charging stations in the first quarter of next year. Owners of parking spaces and garages will be able to earn both from charging customers and selling advertising space on the parking lot building.

It can be expected that there will be more and more such offers as time goes on. And one day, getting out of your car in the parking lot, you’ll be choosing from a dozen robotic charging stations that will be competing to offer their services.
