Compact and autonomous: Volkswagen Group Components’ mobile charging robot.

Jan. 2, 2020—Volkswagen recently unveiled its plans to create autonomous robots that would go around parking garages to charge EVs using traveling battery packs, reports USA Today.

The robot would find your car, attach a charger to it and then move on to other vehicles while your battery juices up.

Once your car battery is fully charged, the robot would come to collect the "energy storage device" and take it back to a nearby charging hub, according to the report.
