Autonomous, Conductive, Robotic fast charging for electric vehicles.
Two key New Mobility Questions
How do we autonomously charge an autonomous vehicle?
How do we fast charge a bus or truck (1MW+) in a way that is efficient, convenient, and cost-effective?
Current charging problems
- Very expensive
- Ugly “street furniture”
- Potential safety issues
- Weight burden on vehicle
- Design bound on human factors
PowerHydrant vs. current charging solutions
Heavy duty electric vehicle
PowerHydrant can effectively carry ultra high current for XFC – 1MW+
XFC (eXtremely Fast Charge)
From the grid...
... to the PowerHydrant ...
... to the heavy duty electric vehicle.
The only charger to effectively support HD EV
- Ultra High Power (1.5MW+, 2,000A)
- Ultra high efficiency (99.9%+)
- Safe, hands-free
- Autonomous operation
- Very Low Maintenance
