TALAKO Pilot Inauguration

On Friday, May 20th, the TALAKO Pilot System was officially inaugurated in Cologne. Placed directly in front of the main train station in Cologne, the system enables the wireless charging of up to 6 electric taxi vehicles while they are waiting for passengers to arrive. The charging technology developed by INTIS and operated by Rheinenergie leverages a camera-based positioning system developed by the researchers of the NES group. As part of the pilot system, the camera-based positioning system is used to compute the vehicle positions which enables INTIS to optimally manage the charging operation.
