A robot in the shape of an arm charges your electric car!

Hyundai’s automatic charging robot has an arm that allows it to connect to the vehicle without forcing it

As the cars become more and more independentthe latest invention of Hyundai takes a step closer to technology. Now it’s a robot that uses artificial intelligence to find the car’s charging port and plug it in.

A useful and efficient robot

Tesla had imagined it, Hyundai made it. Whilea prototype had been presented by Elon Musk’s brand, in the guise of a metallic snake, the Korean company has created a robot that allows us to stay in our vehicle during the charging time. The driver does not even have to get off to load his car !

To make this utopia a reality, the Korean car manufacturer has developed an automatic charging robot (ACR) that takes care of your electric car in your place. The demonstration video presented this week is less impressive than the one Tesla showed in its time in 2015, but it “ bras-robot is innovative.

How does it work ? It is enough for the driver to take a walk back when near a robot. The latter will then connect to the vehicle in order to open the cover giving access to the charging port. The camera and artificial intelligence will allow the robot to be guided. The driver will have nothing to do during this time.

The screen on the robot will say the recharge level. Its loudspeakers warn those who approach so that they do not disconnect the load.

After recharging, the robot returns the arm to its place and indicates a “BYE” on its screen.

A first for the electric car

Even though it looks a lot like the one Tesla did in 2015, this seems easier to use. The CEO of Tesla then tweeted that his company was trying to develop a charger that “ automatically moves away from the wall and connects like a solid metal snake“. It also looked like in the arms of Doctor Octopus from Spider-Man 2.

It never saw the light of day, but Elon Musk said Tesla was still continuing to research its creation.

Hyundai’s idea is to be able to help people with reduced mobility in order to be assisted when recharging their vehicle. It must be said that the terminals are often in uncovered places… If a robot can keep you dry, welcome is it, right?
