Hyundai and Kia think about launching a new wireless charging system for electric vehicles that is combined with an “Automated Valet Parking System (AVPS).
The Hyundai Group explains the system in their press release as follows:
“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.”
This would be able through continuous communication between electric vehicle, parking facility, wireless charging system and driver.
Introduction of the wireless charging system is considered upon the launch of level 4 autonomous vehicles around the year 2025.
