Application: Systems and methods for updating electric charger locations (Patent ID: US20230409561A1)

The patent filed by Rivian Automotive Inc. describes systems and methods for updating the location of an electric charger stored at a server based on the positioning system of an electric vehicle. The method involves determining when an electric vehicle is being charged, retrieving the location of the charger from a server, comparing it to the vehicle's positioning system, and updating the server's location if a threshold distance is exceeded. The system includes processing circuitry to perform these functions and can also consider data from multiple vehicles to identify discrepancies and update locations accordingly.

Overall, the patent focuses on ensuring accurate location information for electric chargers by leveraging the positioning systems of vehicles and comparing them to server-stored locations. By determining discrepancies and updating locations based on specific criteria, such as distance thresholds and data from multiple vehicles, the system aims to provide reliable and up-to-date information for electric vehicle charging infrastructure. This technology can help optimize the charging process, improve user experience, and enhance the overall efficiency of electric vehicle charging networks.
