Medigus Ltd., a technology company engaged in advanced medical solutions, innovative internet technologies, and electric vehicle and charging solutions, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Charging Robotics Ltd., filed a patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
The new patent refers to a unique wireless charging method for electric vehicles parked at automatic car parking systems and parking garages.
The structures of these car parks make it impossible to connect a plug to the vehicle charging socket; therefore, electric vehicles cannot be charged while parking. Charging Robotics' solution is designed to enable charging while parking, by installing the electricity transmitting component of the wireless charging system at the parking structure, and temporarily fixing the electricity receiving component of the vehicles' charging system before it is stored in the parking space. As the car is stored in the parking space, the transmitting and receiving components of the systems are in perfect alignment and charging at high efficiency occurs.
"The use of electric vehicles has increased dramatically over the last few years, and the trend is expected to continue growing. Accessible charging stations to the public have become increasingly important as electric vehicle use increases. The latest patent filed by Charging Robotics enables upgrades to current parking solutions and addresses the increasing demand from drivers to easily charge their vehicles," said Liron Carmel, CEO of Medigus. "We believe that Charging Robotics has the capability of solving pressing problems in the electric charging infrastructure sector and providing added value to owners and users of car parks.”
