DFW Airport to showcase robotic EV charging solution

The airport will host five EV charging demonstrations this summer of several different solutions at customer parking lots.

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has announced it will pilot a series of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations “in a showcase of new and emerging charging technology.” The airport’s Innovation and Planning teams, in partnership with consultant STV, will host a series of five EV charging demonstrations from May through August at various customer parking lots across DFW. These demonstrations will offer the chance to test different EV charging solutions – such as autonomous robotic wireless charging, on-demand charging and apps that enable charging control from anywhere in the world, DFW says. The demonstrations will each focus on a different provider and technology solution and will be available to airport employees and members of the public who are interested in participating.

One of these solutions is ZiGGY, a robotic EV charger from EV Safe Charge. The company says ZiGGY offers a built-in communications and advertising platform to create a revenue stream for sites and maximize EV owner engagement.

Recently, the city of Barcelona chose EV Safe Charge as the winner of a pilot-project competition for flexible EV charging based on ZiGGY’s ability to serve many vehicles within a parking area, the company says, adding that this is the first municipal pilot of a mobile, robotic EV charger.
