• Stanford University develops highway-integrated wireless charging system for EVs

  • standfordwirelesscharging-0.jpgWire-free induction based charging systems for electric vehicles have always been a welcoming thought. Also, given that the electric cars of today travel just 100 miles on a full belly, these need to be recharged while travelling long distances from time to time, which tends to break an otherwise seamless journey. Researchers at the Stanford University have stumbled on a development that could very well make electric car charging more user-friendly. The new system uses magnetic resonance that charges EVs remotely without having to plug in. these systems integrated in highways could very well charge your ride as you drive! Hook them up to renewable energy harvesters and you have yourself a true green mode of private transportation!
