EV Charging Roads: Moving towards an electrified future.


Global warming is increasing day by day along with environmental pollution, majority of it is caused by gasoline powered cars. As world is looking forward for clean fuel, electric cars are the future and are way to go. Electric cars are gaining huge success that major car makers are planning to go all electric by 2020. But people are afraid to buy electric cars as unlike gasoline powered cars they require much more charging time and there are not much recharging stations out there. Thus people buying electric cars have Range Anxiety that their car’s battery will die and will leave them stranded.

To cope up with this problem EV charging roads are now developed  so that your car never run out of juice. Now Sweden unveiled eRoad Arlanda, this is the first electrified road in the world.  It is 2 km stretch along high traffic shopping route. The road contains electrified rails that are installed in the road. The rails attach to vehicle and charge them, the cost is calculated and is deducted from the users account.

The chief executive of the project has said that system is very safe and reliable. There are two tracks which act like outlet on the wall. There is no electricity on the surface, it is only 5-6 cm down the surface. The system is so safe that if saline waste is standing on the road then also person can walk barefoot as it will only contain 1 volt of electric current.

The system is reliable but is too costly, a stretch of each kilometer cost around $1.2 million. Thus if whole US is to be electrified then it would cost $4.8 trillion to convert of road. Additionally Qualcolmm is also working on implementing roads which will wirelessly charge the electric cars. Thus there will be a stretch of road along highway and whenever EV is low in juice you will need to drive the car on that road to charge your car without having to wait in charging station to charge your car. Also Qualcolmm is implementing parking system which will charge your car when you park it over there.

All the power to charge the car is derived from solar energy, As EV with big battery are costly thus there roads will help people to buy a car with smaller battery and they need not to worry about battery dying out.

To sum this up this technology is in developing state and one this is fully developed will bring world one step closer for going  to all electric vehicles.
