Charging stations for electric vehicles, or EVs, can be scarce in under-served communities. Transit routes for commercial EVs may be so long that vehicles need additional charging in between stations.
Purdue researchers have developed a patent-pending, in-road wireless charging innovation for consumer and commercial EVs. This technology will enable wireless charging of EVs while driving, without the need to stop to charge.

“This technology aims to overcome one of the biggest hurdles to EV adoption – charging availability. With these advancements we’ll hopefully see a faster switch from fossil fuel vehicles to electric ones.” – Aaron Taggart, Licensing Associate, Physical Sciences
