In the GINI research project, a smart, semi-autonomous mobile charging robot with fast charging technology and an inductive charging interface is being developed. In addition to the function for charging electrified vehicles in urban areas, the charging of e-bike sharing stations as well as data acquisition, pre-processing and analysis in a connected environment will also be enabled. This can make a significant contribution to the urgently needed expansion of cost-efficient, powerful and flexible charging infrastructure for electrified mobility solutions.

In total, two charging robots and e-bike sharing stations are to be set up in the project to demonstrate the possibilities of an intelligent charging infrastructure and to allow more grid-oriented charging. The test vehicles developed in this context are to be approved in order to illustrate their feasibility for small-scale production and the market. Prior to this, findings from extensive tests under conditions close to the application will be incorporated into the development. The continuously collected data can also be used across projects and provide valuable insights into users, demand and acceptance.
