Rocsys and EasyMile Announce Autonomous Charging Collaboration

Toulouse, France - 16 April, 2024, Easymile, global leader in driverless technology, and Rocsys, the leader in hands-free charging solutions for electric vehicles, are proud to announce a strategic collaboration.

In a significant step towards a future of fully autonomous industrial vehicle operations, EasyMile and Rocsys have started working together to introduce fully autonomous charging solutions within the EasyMile offering. By combining Rocsys' cutting-edge seamless charging technology with EasyMile's expertise in autonomous vehicle (AV) fleets, the collaboration aims to increase the efficiency and reliability of industrial AV operations.

EasyMile already supplies EV solutions to leading global brands including BMW Group, John Deere, and Daimler. Rocsys, part of the robotic charging consortium ROCIN-ECO alongside brands including Audi, Ford and Mercedez-Benz, works with automotive brands, ports, and logistics operators, including Autocar, SSA Marine and Taylor Machine Works.

The partnership aligns with EasyMile and Rocsys’s vision of a future where industrial AVs can seamlessly charge themselves, without any human intervention or downtime. It aims to facilitate AV fleets that can operate continuously, maximizing uptime and productivity.

"Having an autonomous transport operation is not just about driving; it's about providing a comprehensive, industrialized, and certified solution," stated Alban Brisy, Director of Business Development at EasyMile. "Since 2020, we have been diligently developing the best autonomous transport solution, and we are thrilled to announce the successful qualification of Rocsys' solution with our autonomous terminal trucks. This qualification marks a crucial step towards providing fully certified autonomous container transport solutions by 2025."

Rocsys, renowned for its CE-certified autonomous charging systems, brings unparalleled expertise in automated charging technology. Elwin Roetman, Director of Strategic Accounts and Partnerships at Rocsys explained "At Rocsys, we have developed a hands-free charging system that can seamlessly charge any vehicle without human intervention, perfect for operations built around self-driving vehicles where human intervention is light. We are delighted to partner with EasyMile and demonstrate the compatibility of our systems, showcasing to seaports and all autonomous electric vehicle (EV) fleet managers that our solutions can deliver real benefits in terms of scalability, safety, efficiency, and uptime."

"This partnership represents a significant leap forward in the advancement of autonomous vehicle technology. As leaders in our respective fields, EasyMile and Rocsys are committed to driving innovation and shaping the future of industrial AV fleets."

Through next-generation soft robotics, AI-driven computer vision, and data-driven services, EasyMile and Rocsys will enable automated charging from the moment vehicles dock until they are fully charged. The partnership will also offer smart booking and dispatch services, optimizing asset utilization and enhancing operational efficiency.
