Will robots charge e-powered AV Electric Vehicles?


Austrian researchers have supercharged a system for charging electric vehicles. As a bonus, it is fully operated by an autonomous robot. The researchers at Graz University of Technology claim the system can charge an EV “within a few minutes” under certain conditions—speeding up a process that can sometimes take a half a day.

Charging EVs is a problem that a robot might provide a “nice-to-have” solution for today. My bet is that cleaning AVs will be the related problem that robots will be really useful for tomorrow.
