Graz University of Technology: a robot as pump attendant

Charging should take place as quickly as possible and also without the driver’s involvement.  Researchers at the Graz University of Technology cooperating with industrial partners have presented the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system with standard charging plugs (CCS) for electric vehicles for the first time in the world. This global innovation comprises an automated, cable-based robot system, which allows for charging of different vehicles entering the charging space one after the other for the first time.

Thanks to a sophisticated camera technology, the robot recognizes the charging socket of the vehicles, enabling them to charge several e-cars in sequence after they drive into the charging station. The system also works when a vehicle is not parked in an exact position.” Another unique feature is that the robot can operate in various light conditions indoors as well as outdoors. The CCS comfort charging system is designed for use with standard and normal charging plugs of electric vehicles so that no specific vehicle adaptations are required. The project partners were BMW AG, headquartered in Munich; MAGNA Steyr Engineering Graz; Linz-based automation specialists KEBA and the Austrian Society of Automotive Engineers (ÖVK) in Vienna.
