ROCIN-ECO opts for robotic charging solutionsA consortium consisting of industry-leading brands IONITY, Audi, TÜV SÜD and the affiliated partners Porsche, BMW, Ford, Marquardt, ROCSYS, AVL, and HUBER+SUHNER forms the ROCIN-ECO research project. Our collective aim is to develop and demonstrate an interoperable, standardized, and automated charging solution using robotic technology. Whether autonomously driving cars, automated valet parking, or last mile delivery vehicles – automated driving will also need intelligent, robotic charging solutions. In the meantime, we also see the benefits of robotic charging, for example in downtown garages characterized by limited space. Or for charging alternatives like highly-frequented charging hubs, where automated valet charging would allow customers to do other things while their cars queue up and wait for their batteries to get recharged.
