Volkswagen’s bid to provide flexible quick charging stations for its customers has led to the creation of a Mobile Charging Robot that comes to charge your electric car by itself.

The autonomous flexible charger was designed by Volkswagen Group Components. It consists of a self-driving robot as well as agile energy storage devices, also known as battery wagons.

After it is started via app or V2X communication, the mobile robot drives itself to the vehicle that needs charging and communicates with it.

The entire charging process, from opening the charging socket flap to connecting the plug to decoupling, occurs without any human interaction.
