Vehicle system facilitates parking and charging of electric vehicles. The rechargeable battery is only removed from the charging station, which allows other electric vehicles.
After charging the vehicle via a smartphone, the vehicle will automatically be driven to a free charge point.
When the vehicle battery is fully charged, the vehicle will only be moved to an empty parking lot using the AVPS system, which will allow charging with other vehicles at that charging point. When the train prompts its vehicle, it will automatically be taken to the driver's location.
This entire process requires continuous communication between the electric vehicle, the parking lot, the charging system and the driver. There is no empty parking in the park and charging locations, while the charging system reflects the real-time charging status of the vehicle.
Kia and Hyundai are discussing the commercial use of technology when launching the 4th level of autonomous vehicles in 2025.
Kia and Hyundai are also planning to start selling autonomous vehicles in some smart cities since 2021, while their aim is to launch fully autonomous vehicles by 2030.
