Communication between charging station and vehicle

With the help of radio-based wireless communication between vehicle and charging station and a sufficiently precise detection of the vehicle position at the bus stop, a safe contacting process is initialized by corresponding algorithms. This procedure fulfils in particular the following system requirements:

  • Release of the voltage at the charging station output point and at the vehicle-bound part of the contact system only after successful establishment of contact with authorized vehicles
  • Demand-based connection of the charging station ensuring high efficiency of the system
  • Extension of the contact system’s moveable parts into the clearance gauge only when clearance gauge is blocked by the vehicle in the appropriate area of the bus stop
  • Detection of the vehicle’s direction of travel and position within the bus stop enables the serving of different charging locations by one charging station
