Autonomous charging of electric vehicles with robotics: How it worksThe electric vehicle (EV) market is scaling rapidly, requiring a timely roll-out of supporting charging infrastructure. Autonomous charging is key in setting up a reliable, safe and cost-efficient charging process. For unoccupied self-driving EVs, autonomous charging is even more essential to remain operational, as there is no driver present to connect the chargers. This is now possible, and it is called robotic charging or autonomous charging. Furthermore, robotic charging avoids the necessity for the driver to handle the charging cables.
