Researchers from University of British Columbia have developed a safe, efficient wireless charging device for electric vehicles using “remote magnetic gears” – and successfully tested it on campus service vehicles. Prof. Lorne Whitehead, with the university's physics department, says his team has developed a way to wirelessly recharge the vehicle using a frequency 100 times lower than what's used now. ”Wireless charging has been a much sought-after technical solution for everything from cell phones to electric vehicles,” says Prof. Whitehead. “A significant concern for charging cars wirelessly has been the high power and high frequency electromagnetic fields and their unknown, potential health effects on humans.” Their solution uses “remote magnetic gears” – a rotating base magnet driven by electricity from the grid, and a second located within the car – to eliminate the u...
