Sprint kicks tires on robot electric vehicle chargers in NYC

Sprint has teamed up with Adaptive Motion Group to test self-driving robots that can charge up electric vehicles in New York City.

The robots are solar-powered and can move to where they are needed by using artificial intelligence, Sprint’s IoT technology and Sprint’s 5G mobile network, the latter of which will go live in New York City in the first half of next year. Until the 5G network is up and running, the “Mobi” self-driving robots are using Sprint’s LTE network.
