Tel Aviv-based Fuel Doctor Inc. (OTC: FDOC) announced today that its subsidiary, Charging Robotics Ltd., has secured funding from the Israeli Innovation Authority for a pilot project involving wireless charging of electric vehicles (EVs) in automated parking systems. The project aims to address the growing need for EV charging in automated parking systems where drivers are unable to manually connect a charging plug to the EV socket.
Charging Robotics, an innovator in wireless charging solutions, will install and test its system in an automated parking system developed by Parkomot Ltd., one of the leading market providers of automatic parking systems in Israel. The solution offered by Charging Robotics eliminates the need for drivers to physically connect their EVs to charging plugs, making it more convenient and user-friendly.
The funding provided by the Israeli Innovation Authority was awarded after a thorough due diligence process, which evaluated the technology, market potential, competitive landscape, and the competence of Charging Robotics’ team. The authority supports Israeli companies with cutting-edge technologies that address significant market needs.
This pilot project aligns with the objectives of the Israeli Ministry of Energy, which aims to promote electric transportation technologies and facilitate the adoption of EVs. The due diligence process involved close collaboration between project officers from the Israel Innovation Authority and subject matter experts from the Ministry of Energy.
“We are grateful for the support from The Israel Innovation Authority,” said Hovav Gilan, CEO of Charging Robotics. “This partnership with Parkomot reaffirms our belief in the potential impact of wireless charging technology on advancing the adoption of electric vehicles.”
Charging Robotics specializes in developing automatic wireless charging solutions for EVs, including robotic and stationary charging systems. Their robotic solutions allow drivers to initiate charging via a smartphone app, enabling an autonomous robot to navigate under the vehicle and perform the charging. Stationary systems, on the other hand, are ideal for automatic car parks, providing EV charging in scenarios where drivers cannot connect plugs to sockets.
