Tired of the frustrating search for a free EV (electric vehicle) charging station? Say hello to ZiGGY, the robotic charger that brings the charging station to you!

This innovative solution from U.S.-based EV Safe Charge is revolutionizing the world of EV charging by reserving a parking spot for you and charging your car while you’re away. No more circling around parking lots or waiting in long lines for a charging station – ZiGGY has got you covered!  

Plus, with its convenient mobile, bookable feature, you can reserve your charging spot with just a few taps on your phone.

Charging dilemma

In fact, EVs have been making headlines in 2021, with sales doubling from the previous year and reaching an all-time high of 6.6 million cars. The growth trend seems likely to continue, with year-on-year increases already showing in the first figures from 2023. However, the lack of public charging infrastructure may hinder the dynamism of the EV market. The International Energy Agency (IEA) warns in its Global EV Outlook 2022 report that the number of public charging stations governments and agencies have announced as planned may not be enough to power the growing number of EVs on the road.

Bookable solution

In response to this issue, EV Safe Charge has turned to robotics for a mobile, bookable EV charging solution. Rather than reconfiguring public parking ramps to find room for stationary charging stations, the company’s robotic charger, ZiGGY, debuted at the Dallas Fort Worth airport in May 2023. The robot is designed to make EV charging easy and convenient by reserving a parking space for the driver when a charge is requested through the app.

Upon arrival at the airport car park, drivers receive directions to the space the robot has reserved for them. When they return, a fully charged vehicle awaits. This innovative charging solution provides a variety of benefits for car park owners, including sizeable advertising space on two sides of the robot and the elimination of the need to dedicate significant amounts of space to permanent charging stations.

Additionally, by offering EV charging-as-a-service, airports and other large commercial spaces provide customers with a safer, smoother experience. Car owners no longer have to waste time and battery power searching for an available charging center, and frequent flyers don’t have to worry about returning to an uncharged car battery.

One of many

ZiGGY is just one of the many innovative solutions that are helping to upgrade the global EV charging network. Another platform tracks electricity prices for the most cost-effective charge, while an artificial intelligence-powered app charges connected vehicles when the price is best.

Finally, as the demand for EVs continues to grow, the need for efficient and accessible charging infrastructure will only become more pressing. Robotic charging solutions like ZiGGY offer a glimpse into the future of EV charging, where convenience and accessibility are key. Continued innovation and investment can upgrade the EV charging network to meet the needs of drivers and vehicles alike.
