Hyundai proposes automated parking where cars will be charged by induction

7 Jan


It is necessary that the technology related to the car continue to advance and one of the main showcases is the CES of Las Vegas. There many brands take the opportunity to present some of their future proposals, the ideas that could be achieved in the medium term. And one of the most surprised has been the Hyundai and Kia. The Koreans combine two concepts very much in the mouth of all currently: the electric vehicle and the autonomous car.

According to current trends, electric cars will be the only ones that are allowed to circulate in many cities and automated driving will also be very present. That is why they propose what they have dubbed the Automated Valet Parking System (AVPS), a car park in which the car will enter and leave by itself. We have already seen this on occasion and now Koreans are surprised to combine it with a wireless charging system by induction.

In this way the operation would be very simple. The user would get off the electric car to proceed with parking and recharging. Through your smartphone you could control the autonomy and order that load. Then the vehicle would enter the parking lot autonomously and go to one of the seats that offer induction charging without cables. At all times the person would know how the battery charge goes and receive an alert when it reaches 100%.

At that time the vehicle, which no longer needs to occupy a space with wireless charge, would move through that automated parking to another current place to allow other cars to receive their recharge. This is done thanks to the constant communication of the vehicle with the infrastructure. When the user wants to recover his vehicle, it will be sufficient to request it from the same application and the car will go autonomously to its location.

To get to this technology shown still takes some time and development. Hyundai and Kia are planning to achieve level 4 autonomous driving by the year 2025. Level 5, the total autonomy could reach 2030. Meanwhile, they continue to work on other solutions like this that could be arriving after 2021
