Rocsys wants to automate EV charging, starting in ports and yardsTechCrunch+ by Rebecca BellanAmerica’s logistics sector is becoming more electrified and autonomous, and Rocsys, a Dutch startup, wants to hit that sweet spot in the middle. Rocsys has created a robotic arm that can transform any electric vehicle charger into an autonomous charger. “Our solution is crucial in ports because, due to worker regulations, often charging cannot be done by the [truck] drivers,” Crijn Bouman, CEO and co-founder of Rocsys, told TechCrunch. “So in order to electrify fleets, they must automate the charging process.”Bouman went on to say that automated charging has the potential to ensure regulatory compliance and reduce human exposure to high-voltage equipment. On Tuesday, the startup closed a $36 million Series A made up of half equity and half debt.
