Together with the automation specialist Kuka, the Volkswagen Group presented “CarLa”, the first mobile charging robot for automobiles, at the Group Media Night. Such fully automated service robots for use both in public spaces and at home will make a key contribution to boosting the acceptance of e-mobility. “CarLa” automatically begins charging the vehicle once it has been parked – preferably autonomously. With this joint project the two companies are demonstrating how charging can function fast, simply and autonomously. And “CarLa” has the potential to become the industry standard. Both companies plan to extend the research cooperation to the pilot production stage.
