“Automation will change the landscape of e-mobility forever and unlock the true potential of electric vehicles”
Power Swap is an autonomous, modular system for battery swapping of electric vehicles. The system executes the battery swap procedure in complete automation – with the touch of a finger. The whole procedure is completed within 3 minutes and can be monitored through the app.
Carrying a 200 kg battery is a huge challenge for us humans, but for a machine it is a simple task. Our battery swap unit will find the location of the battery compartment through an optical search system, extract the discharged battery and send it to the battery storage for charging, replacing it with a fully charged one. In the storage, the batteries are charged under harmonious conditions – minimizing stress on the battery and the grid. Payment is handled through an app or a RFID system, enabling fast and easy transactions.
The Power Swap unit can be installed at existing petrol stations, similar to petrol pumps, or at public parking lots – enabling the establishment of a cost efficient inrastrucutre. The unit functions as a distribution system for batteries and is equipped with multiple sensors, motors and computer systems. Our unique system swaps the batteries from the side of a vehicle -reducing the unit’s complexity, size and cost.
A concept video showcasing the Power Swap system and its functionality. The battery swap unit automatically locates and replaces the battery in under 3 minutes. The old battery is sent to a storage unit where it is recharged at a harmonious rate.
The dimensioning of the storage will depend on external parameters such as traffic, grid capacity and location. With a high grid capacity, the storage will contain fewer batteries as more power can be used for charging. A normal number of batteries is 20-25. The storage is also suitable for integration with solar or wind energy – making the Power Swap system 100% eco-friendly.
