Autonomous Charging for AVs

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are rolling out in many industries, from autonomous yard trucks that move cargo in ports, to autonomous busses and shuttles that transport passengers. Many of these vehicles are also all-electric, as electrification can provide numerous benefits for autonomous vehicles, including cleaner emissions, a more stable power source, and better responsiveness.  

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

Why is Autonomous Charging needed?

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, which, in turn, effects productivity. By automating the charging process, Rocsys closes the automation loop, ensuring autonomous vehicles are charged and ready to roll at a moment’s notice, all without having to depend on someone to manually plug or unplug the vehicle from the charger.

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.  
  • Scalability:
    Autonomous charging allows for fleets to grow in size without a significant impact on productivity and efficiency.
