Charging Robotics has completed its first technological milestone in the proof of concept of an autonomous robotic charging pad for the wireless charging of electric vehicles (EVs).
Charging Robotics, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Medigus, a technology company engaged in advanced medical solutions and internet technologies, completed the assembly and testing of its robot, showing it can be directed to find a specific spot under the vehicle and optimise its position for high-efficiency wireless charging.
The company said it intends to further integrate charging components onto the robotic platform to complete the proof of concept in full.
Charging Robotics’ on-demand autonomous charging system is designed to be used anywhere, anytime, and is intended to have self-aligning capabilities to EV battery chargers.
According to the company, its autonomous Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) technology, once developed, should seamlessly and efficiently charge the vehicle upon demand. Furthermore, it will carry the WPT from a charging station or charging truck to a customer’s vehicle that needs electric charging.
