Application: Electric vehicle charging management system and method (Patent ID: US20240025284A1)

The patent filed by State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. discloses computer-implemented methods and systems for an autonomous recharging vehicle (ARV) to efficiently charge electric vehicles. The methods involve charging the ARV, assigning it to a geographical area, broadcasting its location and battery charge level, receiving requests for battery charge from electric vehicles, and scheduling rendezvous points for recharging. The claims detail a method implemented by processors associated with the ARV, involving forming a queue of electric vehicles for charging, optimizing the order based on factors like battery charge and location, scheduling rendezvous points, and routing the ARV accordingly. The system includes an ARV and processors configured to perform similar functions, with additional capabilities like evaluating battery levels, determining routes to recharging stations, and broadcasting availability for recharging.

In summary, the patent focuses on optimizing the charging process for electric vehicles through an ARV system that efficiently manages requests, schedules, and routes for recharging. By utilizing processors and wireless communication, the ARV can prioritize charging based on various factors, rearrange the order of vehicles in the queue, and automatically navigate to rendezvous points for recharging. The system not only streamlines the charging process but also considers factors like weather, traffic, and road conditions to enhance overall efficiency and effectiveness in servicing electric vehicles.
