The buzzard in action

Wireless inductive charging is on the rise, being adopted by organizations and businesses to charge autonomous electric vehicles and robots. It offers significant efficiency benefits and is safer than traditional charging methods.

Warehouse & industry 4.0: heading toward fully automated logistics

The Buzzard is perfectly suited for all types of autonomous mobile robots and electrical vehicles in warehouses and industrial environments. Think of mobile carts and robots for picking and kitting activities, autonomous order pickers, tractors/towers, stackers, trolleys, and trains ... And thanks to the Buzzard, even drones that perform cycle counts remain active 24/7, which is particularly valuable in 24-hour warehouses and factories.

Agriculture: AI and wireless charging

High-tech farms deploy robots powered by artificial intelligence for tasks such as crop harvesting and weeding. Thanks to the Buzzard charging system, they automatically return to the charging pad, just like a mowing robot, and remain active around the clock.

Healthcare and retail: the rise of disinfectant robots

Since Covid, there has been a significant rise in the adoption of disinfectant robots. Using UV-C irradiation, they manage to disinfect entire rooms without any physical contact. Hospitals use them, but also department stores and shopping malls. The buzzard allows them to do their work 24/7, without the need for any human intervention.

The future of charging is wireless

Working 24/7

In some organizations, industrial electric vehicles are charged manually. In others, human involvement has already been eliminated and the vehicles connect to the grid themselves. The second is certainly the best option. But even so, in both cases charging takes 6 to 8 hours, leaving your vehicle useless for about 30% of the time.

Fortunately, there's contactless wireless inductive charging now. One of its advantages is that it enables in-process charging (opportunity charging). So that instead of several hours straight, your vehicle charges itself for just a few minutes every hour. That way, it’s able to perform 24/7.

No human handling

Using the buzzard, your vehicle charges itself. As a result, nobody loses time performing low-value operations such as plugging in a cable, changing a battery, or pressing a button. In addition, you also reduce the risk of human errors.

Maintenance-free solution

During charging, your vehicle positions itself a few centimeters from the charging pad. No contact whatsoever occurs. Moreover, wireless charging is free from wear and tear. The buzzard contains no rotating parts such as a fan that needs oil or can break down. So your charging system requires no maintenance and you no longer need to replace parts. That's another way to save money, time, and unnecessary hassle.

Extends the lifespan of your battery

Every hour, your vehicle recharges. At that moment, its battery has a capacity of 70% and then recharges in a couple of minutes to 85%. Result? The battery never gets depleted, making it last much longer.

Increased safety

Whenever an employee plugs into a socket, he risks causing sparks. In environments with flammable substances, this can be dangerous. Wireless charging eliminates that risk because there is no physical connection between the battery and the grid.
