Hermann Hauser and Hermann Stockinger, founder of Easelink GmbH and alumni of I.E.C.T – Summer School, share the same vision: shaping a sustainable future

Hermann Hauser sees three major trends changing mobility: the electrification of the vehicle powertrain, mobility as a service and autonomous driving. This forces OEMs to adapt their powertrain configurations and as well as setup changes of the charging infrastructure by charge point operators. The more autonomous electric vehicles get, the more important automated charging systems become. Easelink, a deep-tech company, is about to close this missing link by developing an automated charging solution “Matrix Charging®” for electric vehicles. This automated charging system proves its potential with a high performance, efficiency and user comfort. Any parking time can be converted into charging time. 

The charging system consists of two components: the Matrix Charging® Connector which is integrated on the vehicle underbody and the Matrix Charging® Pad which is the infrastructure component integrated in the parking space. Both elements set up a highly effective conductive and automated connection to charge the vehicle. 

Currently, several prototypes of Matrix Charging® are tested in urban city pilot projects and showcase the potential of the technology usability. A high scalability rate of Matrix Charging® can be achieved by licensing models within the automotive and infrastructure industry. 

Hermann Hauser joined Easelink as an investor to contribute in making the ground-breaking technology Matrix Charging® a standard for automated conductive charging in e-mobility. 

About Easelink

The new standard for automatic charging.

Easelink industrializes Matrix Charging®, the first automated conductive charging technology that has no moving parts outside the vehicle. The vision behind the technology is to use all possible parking times of electric vehicles as charging times through an automated charging connection at the respective parking place. The Matrix Charging® system consists of two components: A vehicle unit in the vehicle underbody (Matrix Charging® Connector) and a charging plate in the parking surface (Matrix Charging® Pad). As soon as the vehicle is parked in the car park above the charging pad, the vehicle is automatically charged through the direct physical connection.

Park and charge.

Electric cars with Matrix Charging® systems automatically charge when parked over a Matrix Charging® pad. Connector and pad communicate via a secure wireless connection. Once the vehicle is parked in the parking lot above the pad, the vehicle is automatically charged through the direct physical connection. An intelligent charging management system permanently controls and monitors the charging process.

The main components.

Matrix Charging® Connector

The Matrix Charging® Connector houses all moving parts. Because of its light weight, smart design and adaptable geometry, it can easily be retrofitted in any electric vehicle.

Supported by gravity, the Connector performs a vertical, unidirectional movement to connect the vehicle with the Matrix Charging® Pad.

Matrix Charging® Pad

The Matrix Charging® Pad can be easily installed in any parking lot. It is also possible to integrate the pad with the parking surface to create a level parking area.

High-quality materials, a flat design and the absence of moving parts make the Pad very durable. It can withstand all weather influences, can be driven over without restriction and is vandalism-proof.
