Car Charging Roads Are the Way of the Future in the UK (3 pics)

Posted in Random » Awesome   19 Aug 2015   / 3579 views

The UK is testing a new road that uses electromagnetic field generating equipment to charge an electric car simply by driving over it.

 

Highways England plans to test this technology over 18 months before a decision is made to move the project to public roads
Electric cables are buried under the road to generate electromagnetic fields which are caught by a coil inside the vehicle and converted into electricity
The government is already committing £500 million over the next five years to keep Britain at the forefront of this technology
