Together with the automation specialist Kuka, the Volkswagen Group presented â€œCarLaâ€?, 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. â€œCarLaâ€? automatically begins charging the vehicle once it has been parked â€“ preferably autonomously. With this joint project the two companies are demonstrating how charging can function fast, simply and autonomously. And â€œCarLaâ€? has the potential to become the industry standard. Both companies plan to extend the research cooperation to the pilot production stage.
