Bosch and Cariad Showcase Automated Valet Charging at CES

Bosch and Volkswagen subsidiary, Cariad are showcasing automated valet charging during the CES 2024 exhibition in Las Vegas.

This solution is based on Bosch’s automated valet parking system, which is the world’s first driverless SAE Level 4 parking service. This service has been operational in the P6 parking garage at Stuttgart Airport in Germany for the past year.

Bosch and Cariad recognise that like the time-consuming endeavour of finding a parking space, locating a free-charge spot can be a pain point for drivers. The automated valet parking system thus drives electric vehicles to an unoccupied space with a charging point, where a charging robot will automatically recharge it.

Once the recharging process is complete, the vehicle will then autonomously travel to another parking space. This system increases the efficiency of the charging infrastructure and allows several vehicles to be recharged and parked without human interaction.

Manuel Maier, Vice President of the cross-domain Level 4 parking product area at Bosch said:

“Automation plays a key role in the mobility revolution and the transition to electromobility. Our two services – automated valet parking and automated valet charging – make the mobility experience much smoother for users.

“Making it straightforward to recharge electric vehicles allays people’s misgivings about range, and is essential if electromobility is to find widespread acceptance. With this in mind, Bosch and Cariad can make parking and charging even more efficient and convenient.”

Bosch and Cariad are now testing this technology at in-house parking garages in Germany. Meanwhile, Bosch is showcasing the automated charging technology at CES 2024.
