Autonomous Charging for AVs

Autonomous robotaxi fleets are rolling out in cities throughout the world. Many of these fleets are also all-electric, as electrification can provide numerous benefits for autonomous vehicles (AV's), including cleaner emissions, a more stable power source, and better responsiveness.    

But as more companies turn to electric autonomous vehicles, one critical step is often overlooked: charging. If an electric vehicle can drive itself, why can’t it charge itself too? 

Why Autonomous Charging for AV's?

For electric vehicles, efficiency is everything. Improperly plugged in vehicles, damaged charging equipment, or an insufficient number of chargers can all lead to out of commission vehicles. And an out of commission vehicle isn’t on the road generating revenue. By automating the charging process, Rocsys closes the automation loop, charging vehicle the moment they pull up to the charger, ensuring autonomous vehicles are ready to roll as soon as possible. 

Automating the charging process has numerous benefits:

  • Simple Integration:
    Rocsys autonomous charging is design agnostic, easily accommodating different chargers and vehicle types without expensive retrofits to vehicles or charging infrastructure. 
  • Innovative:
    Autonomous charging creates a seamless charging experience for fleets, allowing vehicles to drive, park, charge and return to service all without the need for a human operator.  
  • Safety First:
    Autonomous charging removes the need for on-site personnel to handle charging equipment in inclement weather, high-traffic areas, or other hazardous working conditions.  
  • Opportunity Charging:
    Automating the charging process means fleets can charge in more locations throughout their operating area without having to return to a central charging location.
