Electric-driven vehicles are mainly charged by standardized cable connections today, whereby connection and disconnection are carried out manually. In this context, the automation of charging processes represents an important factor for increasing customer comfort, whereby different technologies are considered. In addition to conductive charging using standardized connections, different methods for conductive or inductive charging via the vehicle underbody have been presented. In addition to manual parking of vehicles at the charging bay, autonomous parking functions will also be used in the future  - for this reason, automatic charging systems have to be designed for both manual parking and self-parking vehicles. One important influencing factor on the system requirements of the automatic charging system and the correct function of the charging process has the positioning accuracy of the vehicle on the charging bay. In addition, standard connectors (e. g. according to IEC 62196) place high demands on the exact guidance of the connector system into the charging socket, which requires complex kinematic systems to execute the motion sequences.
