New technology could lead to wireless charging of electric vehicles while they cruise down the highway. The long-term goal of the high-efficiency charging system—that uses magnetic fields to transmit large electric currents between metal coils placed several feet apart—is to dramatically increasing the driving range of electric cars and trucks and develop an all-electric highway. “Our vision is that you’ll be able to drive onto any highway and charge your car,” says Shanhui Fan, associate professor of electrical engineering at Stanford University. “Large-scale deployment would involve revamping the entire highway system and could even have applications beyond transportation.” A wireless charging system would address a major drawback of plug-in electric cars—their limited driving range.
