  • a charger;

    a first charging part provided in the charger and including a high-frequency current generator to rectify commercial power and to convert the rectified power into a high-frequency square wave signal, a primary induction coil to generate an electromagnetic field by the high-frequency square wave signal supplied from the high-frequency current generator, and a first terminal part to emit the electromagnetic field created by the primary induction coil; and

    a second charging part provided in the robot and including a second terminal part to mate with the first terminal part, a secondary induction coil to generate an induced current by the electromagnetic field emitted from the first charging part, and a DC converter to rectify the induced current generated from the secondary induction coil and to supply DC power to the battery.
