Charging Robotics, a subsidiary of Israeli sensing technology firm Medigus, has developed an autonomous robotic charging pad for wireless charging of electric vehicles. The company’s robot can be directed to find a specific spot under the vehicle and optimise its position for high-efficiency wireless charging.

Charging Robotics is developing an on-demand autonomous charging system that can be used anywhere.

The wireless charging system being developed is intended to have self-aligning capabilities to electric vehicle battery chargers. The autonomous Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) technology, once developed, is intended to charge the vehicle automatically on demand. The robot will carry the Wireless Power Transfer from a charging station or charging truck to the vehicle that needs electric charging.
