Charging Solutions for Electric Autonomous Vehicles

Charging Solutions for Electric Autonomous Vehicles

Electrification and autonomy will ultimately dominate the automotive space. Future autonomous electric vehicles (EVs), especially shared autonomous fleets such as robotaxis will have no driver to perform the charging tasks. In that case, how will future autonomous EVs be refuelled? This premium article will provide an overview of charging solutions for autonomous EVs including conductive robotic charging and wireless charging. Alternative solutions such as battery swapping will also be discussed.
