Wirelessly Charge Robotic Devices
As the robotic industry grows, so does the need to power these devices. The use of mechanical connections requires clean contacts, accurate alignment and ideal environments. Mechanical failure and reliability issues increase with frequent power connections.
If you are developing autonomous service robots for a commercial application, you want the freedom of a system that can charge batteries without human interaction. And, a power source that doesn’t require a complicated docking system with failure-prone mechanical connections.
WiPow systems are designed without mechanical contacts to allow hermetic sealing of the device. That provides the freedom to operate and battery charge in a less-than-ideal environment. Best of all, WiPow technology is tolerant of alignment errors, so there is no need for robotic docking with high physical accuracy.
Independent Mobile Robot Power is Easy with WiPow
If you are developing autonomous service robots for a commercial application, you want the freedom of a system that can charge batteries without human interaction, and doesn’t require a complicated docking system with failure prone mechanical connections.
Telepresence surrogates are now being used for individuals participating in events at a remote location. To make these devices independent, the user needs to be able to charge batteries without local assistance. The Power Pad accomplishes this easily with a simple roll-on roll-off solution.
For telepresence-transport robots developed for locations where there are no people within the environment, simple and reliable power charging can be accomplished using WiPow devices instead of mechanical connections. Power coupling using WiPow systems can survive in class-10 clean rooms because no mechanical contacts are made.
