'Dynamic Charging' technology would see electric race cars (such as this Peugeot EX1, perhaps) receiving power while moving, from transmitters embedded in the track (Photo: Peugeot)
As some Gizmag readers will already know, the new technical regulations for Formula One racing state that cars must move under electrical power only when in the pit lanes. Eyebrow-raising though that may be, two companies are currently collaborating on technology that would see cars being powered by electric motors for the entire race. Instead of looking at ultra-powerful batteries or three-hour recharging pit stops, however, they're taking another approach - they propose that the cars could wirelessly receive power from transmitters embedded in the track.
