Forget stops charging electric car because the roads of the future will fill electric cars while driving on them and will eliminate the need to stop to fill. Israeli startup Electroad work for a greener future on Earth with its technology that equips existing roads with underground coils, which will fill the cars with electricity. The team has already made a successful test of the technology and the first such time will be in Tel Aviv and after you move public buses.
Start-up company was founded in order to reduce emissions emeisijata and promises cost-effective, more efficient and cleaner mode of transport in the future. The company uses a technology that relies on electromagnetic induction, which is the basic principle behind wireless charging phones.
Although other companies such as Qualcomm and KAIST also working on wireless charging car CEO Electroad , Oren Ezer says that although the concept is the same, the technology is different. “Our technology is flexible. It only takes copper and tire setup is simple and fast, “said Lake.
One kilometer time this can be done in just one day. Electroad plans to focus on public transport before moving to private cars. Five months ago the company has tested the technology in Tel Aviv with one electric bus. This is truly sustainable solution because the batteries for buses cost about $ 300,000 and weigh as much as 5 tons. Ezer wants all the transport in Israel to convert it to electric which will be powered by roads. For this purpose Electroad received a grant for research and innovation program Horizon 2020 the European Union.
