Students Develop Automatic Charging Station for Electric Aircraft at Lilium

Four students of Munich University of Applied Sciences developed an automatic charging station for electric aircraft during a project with Lilium. The device enables easy charging without manual interventions. As soon as the electric aircraft is in park position, the plug connects the aircraft to the charger. This innovative project was realised in collaboration with Lilium GmbH, one of the ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) Bavaria network’s high-flying startups.
