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 networked environment will also be enabled. This will enable a significant contribution to the urgently needed expansion of cost-efficient, high-performance and flexible charging infrastructure for electrified mobility solutions.

In total, two charging robots and e-bike sharing stations will be built within the project to demonstrate the possibilities of an intelligent charging infrastructure and to allow a more grid-oriented charging. The test vehicles developed in this context will be approved in order to demonstrate their feasibility for small-scale production and the market. Prior to this, knowledge gained 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 about users, demand and acceptance.
