tarnishing EV Safe Charge presented the Ziggy robotic charger, designed to work offline in parking garages. After accepting an online order, the system reserves a parking space and, when the customer arrives, stands behind their electric car and opens access to the charging port.
Ziggy is a mobile battery pack (capacity not stated) equipped with lights and sensors located around the perimeter for an autonomous navigation system. The robot moves on four wheels, each of which rotates, which gives the device high maneuverability.
The mobile charger supports remote booking via a mobile app. Upon receipt of an order, the robot finds a free space in the parking lot and takes it, while the application directs the customer to the desired point. The Ziggy chassis has enough ground clearance to negotiate speed bumps and a low enough center of gravity to avoid tipping over when riding on ramps.
Installed in a mall parking lot, the robot will charge the customer’s electric car while the customer is shopping. Upon returning, the car enthusiast pays for the services through the same application, turns off the charging connector, and the robot goes to a new client or to his colleagues.
