rfid induction roadbed

powered induction roadbedThe Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology says heavy batteries are not the best way forward because of cost, weight and finite lithium.

Its “recharging road” buries power just under the surface.

Vehicles suck up power from the strips via induction without coming into direct contact.

The system would allow smaller batteries or extended range for electric vehicles.

A prototype at KAIST’s campus already powers a bus service.
