It’s the ultimate in EV charging to relocate to another parking space so that the charging unit is available to another EV user that needs to charge their vehicle. But sometimes work gets in the way of gentility. Hyundai is bringing civility back to the world of charging.
The System won’t be available until 2025 and it will incorporate autonomous level 4 vehicle with remote parking. This technology enables a smoother EV charging experience with the autonomous features people have looked forward to creating.
SEOUL, Jan. 3, 2019 — Hyundai Motor Company and Kia Motors Corporation unveiled a video featuring the concept of an electric vehicle wireless charging system with the Automated Valet Parking System (AVPS).
The system will offer a convenience to drivers who are faced with an overcrowding of both parking and charging locations as electric vehicle numbers grow steadily. It relocates fully charged vehicles from charging stations and allow other awaiting electric vehicles to charge.
Upon commanding the vehicle to charge using a smartphone, the vehicle will automatically cruise to a vacant wireless charging station. When the vehicle is fully charged, it will relocate to another vacant parking space using the Automated Valet Parking System (AVPS), allowing other vehicles to charge at the spot. When the driver calls for the vehicle, it will then autonomously return to the location of the driver.
