German automaker Volkswagen and robot maker Kuka are broadening a cooperation to develop ways which robots can assist motorists of electric and autonomous vehicles, Volkswagen stated.
Europe’s biggest automaker in 2016 announced a multi-billion-euro shift to welcome electric vehicles and new mobility services as it fights to overcome its diesel emissions scandal.
To name a few, Volkswagen and Kuka, which was bought by Chinese home device maker Midea, are dealing with a system to link electrical cars and trucks to charge points with the assistance of robots, Volkswagen stated.
“The driver merely has to position the electrically powered vehicle in a designated parking space. The robot takes care of linking up the charging cable for the driver,” it stated, including the two companies were also making strategies to develop other concepts.
