Italy tests highways to charge electric cars

There are many challenges to overcome in order for drivers around the world to completely switch to electric cars.

One of the biggest challenges is the charging infrastructure where you need to create enough chargers to keep electric vehicles and overloading for everyone.

Currently, some electric cars can take a few hours to fully charge.

Many car makers and researchers believe that it will be possible in the future to charge electric cars via highways as electric cars can be charged while they are running.

Although it sounds like science fiction, Italy will open the first highway for charging electric cars.

The route opens along the routes of Northern Italy. The system was developed by ElectReon Wireless, which specializes in inductive charging for electric vehicles.

The technology developed by the company enables the electric vehicle battery to charge the electric vehicle battery on a special road with integrated electrical equipment.

The first test of the system was carried out in Italy along the one kilometer stretch of the motorway between Milan and Brescia.

The company is integrating its wireless technology to charge two Stellatis cars and IVECO buses while driving as part of the Future Arena project.

The project aims to demonstrate the contactless charging of a range of electric vehicles while driving on highways and toll roads. This is one possible way to decarbonize the transportation system from road traffic lanes.

ElectReon Wireless is building an infrastructure to extend the highway by installing copper coils under the asphalt.

When the car crosses the street via magnetic induction, the energy from these coils is transmitted wirelessly to the car battery.

The toll collection system requires that a traffic manager and receiver be installed in the chassis of each test vehicle.

This closed ring road is called "Future Arena" or "Arena Arena" in Italian and is located near the Chiari Ovest exit of the A35 motorway, about 50 kilometers from Milan.

Whether driving or stationary, vehicles participating in the test are billed for this route.

If the experiment is successful, it could mean fewer charging stations and there would be less need to stop charging electric cars in the future.

If the technology could be used on all major roads in the future, it could mean the end of the era of waiting for electric cars to charge.

Electrified roads can also mean that major problems related to the global adoption of electric vehicles will be eliminated.
