EKA Design & Future Technologies + Alexela

Välk is an autonomous charging assistant that charges electric vehicles wherever they are parked, making them responsive instead of sleeping when not in use. Although discreet and simple, Välk powerfully and efficiently completes the task it was designed to do: transferring power to cars. It delivers around a 100km charge range in 25 to 30 minutes.

Välk can be called remotely through a mobile app. It also allows users to choose range, duration, maximum cost and energy. As soon as a Välk is booked, it searches for the car’s number plate and plugs in the arm by aligning itself to kick start the process. When the charging is done, Välk automatically departs.

Supervisors: Martin Pärn, Ruth-Helene Melioranski
