Researchers developing roads that charge your electric car while you're driving

Clemson University is working on its first trials of dynamic wireless charging on roadways.

For example, in urban settings, where vehicles may sit at intersections or traffic lights, the vehicles can absorb greater amounts of power, Taiber said. Conversely, vehicles traveling along high-speed highways would be able to absorb far lower amounts of power.

"We see great potential in understanding the technology of wireless charging to deliver value to our customers. In particular, we see the need to work more on dynamic wireless charging and to automate the charging process," Jae Lee, Toyota research and development manager, said in a statement.
