Wireless Charging Of Electric Vehicles While In Transit

CleanTechnica has an article on recharging electric buses while they are on the move - Active Wireless Charging In Transit; Remarkable Progress In Korea For Electric Vehicles.
Improvements with the electric transit infrastructure unfold at light speed. Active wireless charging in transit with electric vehicles, in this case electric buses, is taking place. Korea has broken through with accelerated wireless power efficiency with the Online Electric Vehicle (OLEV). This technology from the Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) is setting another standard that increases the development of electric vehicles and addresses the (slight) time issue of charging. This breakthrough works for personal or public transportation presently, allowing vehicles to be charged while stationary or while moving. “This is accomplished by solving technological issues that limit the commercialization of electric vehicles such as price, weight, volume, driving distance, and lack of charging infrastructure,” ResearchSEA writes.
