Charge as you go...

South Korean road wirelessly recharges OLEV buses
Quote
South Korea has switched on a road which can recharge electric vehicles as they drive over it.

Quote
It means vehicles fitted with compatible equipment do not need to stop to recharge and can also be fitted with smaller than normal batteries.

Quote
"I think we are decades away from even thinking about a nationwide network of electrified roads," said Ashvin Chotai, managing director of the Intelligence Automotive Asia consultancy.

Nothing meantioned as to whether the speed of the vehicle affects the rate at which it is charged. Does anyone know the answer?

Re: Charge as you go...

I wonder if a compatible tablet and mobile would charge up as well?
Over here it would make more sense if they could work some sort of charging via the bus suspension. Then with our inbuilt system of nationwide potholes an electric bus would have a limitless range. Cheesy
