  • Patent number: 10737580
    Abstract: A vehicle includes a vehicle body, a positioning mechanism and an electric power supply unit. The vehicle body is configured to be able to carry a sub-mobility device in which a passenger sits. The sub-mobility device includes an electric power receiving unit. The positioning mechanism is provided in the vehicle body and configured to position the sub-mobility device in the vehicle body at a predetermined location. The electric power supply unit is provided in the vehicle body and configured to supply electric power to the electric power receiving unit of the sub-mobility device positioned at the predetermined location, by contacting or approaching the electric power receiving unit.

  • Patent number: 10732638
    Abstract: A sub-mobility device charging system for a vehicle is capable of moving while carrying a sub-mobility device in which passengers sit. The system includes a main electric power supply unit, a main electric power receiving unit, a main battery, a main electric power supply circuit, and a controller. When external charging is required depending on a total amount of the electric power stored in the main battery of the vehicle and a sub-battery of the sub-mobility device, the controller generates or selects a traveling route to pass through a road or a point where the main electric power receiving unit can be supplied with electric power from the outside of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10649456
    Abstract: A sub-mobility device charging system for a vehicle is capable of moving while carrying a sub-mobility device in which a passenger sits. The system includes an acquisition unit, a main electric power supply unit and a controller. The acquisition unit acquires a destination or traveling schedule inputted to the sub-mobility device; the main electric power supply unit supplies electric power to the sub-mobility device carried in the vehicle; and the controller controls to supply electric power to the sub-mobility device via the main electric power supply unit. The controller charges the sub-mobility device on a basis of the acquired traveling schedule for the sub-mobility device in the destination, and generates a traveling route to guide the charged sub-mobility device to a stop-off points corresponding to the destination.
