Volkswagen introduced a prototype robot that acts as a charger for electric cars. Interestingly, the device is able to independently find a parked car, and then connect it to the charging station. The robot has an advanced navigation system based on webcams, sensors and lasers.
Volkswagen is thinking more seriously about electric cars. The designed robot is able to move around the parking lot among cars to find a car that needs charging. Then it can start charging the battery.
The robot must be able to provide up to 50 kW of electricity. True, for most electric vehicles this is not enough to fully charge, but it will allow further movement to continue. Volkswagen's plan suggests that you can install several of these robots in the same garage or in a parking lot.
