Medigus: Charging Robotics Targets the $1.8 Billion Automated Parking Market for EV Wireless Charging Solution
Charging Robotics received funding from the Israel Innovation Authority for its pilot project to develop and demonstrate its solution for wirelessly charging electric vehicles in automated parking systems.
Tel Aviv, Israel, Dec. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Medigus Ltd. (Nasdaq: MDGS), a technology company engaged in advanced medical solutions, innovative internet technologies, and electric vehicle and charging solutions, announced the launch of a unique pilot of a wireless charging solution to meet the growing demand for electric vehicle (EV) charging in automated parking systems.
This project was led by Charging Robotics Ltd., an innovator in wireless charging solutions and a subsidiary of Fuel Doctor Holdings, Inc., (“FDOC”) a Delaware corporation listed on the OTC Market and owned by Medigus (67.15%).
Charging Robotics specializes in developing cutting-edge wireless charging solutions designed to seamlessly integrate into the evolving landscape of electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure. Charging Robotics is at the forefront of innovation, focusing on the creation of wireless charging systems that can be deployed in various settings, including automated parking systems.
In August 2023, the company announced that it started a pilot project with an automatic car park provider in Israel to evaluate Charging Robotics’ wireless charging system for electric vehicles. For that purpose, in November 2023, the company secured funding from the Israel Innovation Authority to fund the pilot project. The total approved budget for this project is approximately NIS 1.2 million (approximately USD 445,000), of which the Israel Innovation Authority will finance 50%.
According to Market.us1, the global Automated Parking System market was valued at USD 1.8 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow to USD 5.2 billion by 2032. Between 2023 and 2032, this market is estimated to register a CAGR of 11.4%. Alongside the expected growth in the EV market, the combination of EVs and automated parking creates potential for a more sustainable and efficient future for transportation.
The wireless charging system is set to answer the unmet need of charging EVs in automatic car parks. Automatic car parks are gaining popularity as they offer an ultra-efficient solution to park cars, while also reducing expensive real estate costs. However, since these are automated facilities, currently there is no way for the driver to connect a charging cable to the vehicle. This is a major concern and a market restrain for automated parking manufacturers and EV manufacturers, particularly in areas where electric vehicles are growing rapidly- this is the con Charging Robotics aiming to address.
Besides enabling EV charging in automatic car parks, the wireless charging system has numerous advantages, including:
Seamless Integration: the wireless charging system will be seamlessly integrated into the automatic car park infrastructure, requiring minimal modifications to the existing layout. This ensures a minimum installation process while maximizing parking capacity
Convenient Charging Experience: drivers will start the system using a dedicated smart phone application, which will also notify the driver about the charging process
Scalability and Adaptability: the system’s modular design enables easy scalability, allowing the parking lot operator to increase the number of chargers in the facility based on the number of electric vehicles. The system will be able to charge all electric vehicles at efficiencies of >93% which is outstanding for wireless charging systems.
About Charging Robotics
Charging Robotics is developing various automatic wireless charging solutions such as robotic and stationary charging systems for electric vehicles. Robotic solutions are intended to offer the driver the ability to initiate charging by use of a simple smartphone app so that an autonomous robot will navigate under the vehicle and charge it. Stationary systems offer various solutions for example in automatic car parks allowing to charge EVs in places where drivers can’t connect plugs to sockets.
