Earlier this year it was announced that Dutch early stage fund UNIIQ had also invested in ROCSYS.
Founded by a highly experienced entrepreneurial team, ROCSYS addresses the growing need for automation of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (‘EV’). As the automotive world steadily moves towards self-parking and self-driving, charging automation becomes inevitable. ROCSYS’ patented solutions help operators of charging infrastructure to optimize utilization of their assets and run business critical operations with EVs. ROCSYS is based in RoboValley.
Innovative soft robotics technology
ROCSYS’ innovative soft robotics technology allows for safe and cost-efficient automation of the EV charging connection. This enables fully unmanned charging operations. Its solutions include support for high-power charging. For example, applying ROCSYS’ technology to the currently available 350kW chargers allows an electric vehicle to be automatically charged in under 15 minutes. Combined with ROCSYS’ remote services, support, and API integration, operators can achieve unprecedented functionality, performance and ROI with their charging infrastructure and electric vehicle assets, while simultaneously getting prepared for the era of self-parking and self-driving.
