ZiGGY is an on-demand EV-charging service that functions as follows:
- Users book a ZiGGY bot through an app
- The robot then holds a parking space for you, while directing you to its location
- As you approach the space, ZiGGY files out for you to park before re-locating behind your vehicle
- You confirm activation with the app, and then begin charging
ZiGGY is an attempt to get ahead of parking infrastructure regulations, as the mobility of the robot eliminates an expensive re-configuration of a given parking area. The device also can offer another revenue source for both its EV charging and advertisement opportunities across its double-sided screens.
Expect to see more EV-charging solutions hitting the market over the next few years as more and more people switch from ICE to electric. It’s hard to say if ZiGGY will be the bot to set the bar for charging solutions, but it at least gets points for being far out.
