KAIST Online Electric Vehicle uses non-contact magnetic charging to draw its power needs from beneath the surface of the road
The future of electric mobility? The OLEV proves to be quite the talking point
KAIST researchers are given the opportunity to discuss the technology with President Lee Myung-bak
Driving in a convoy formation will lead to energy savings and could allow the vehicle to drive itself
How it all works...
Researchers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have developed an electric transport system where the vehicles get their power needs from cables underneath the surface of the road via non-contact magnetic charging. As well as potentially saving Koreans a lot of money by reducing crude oil imports, widespread adoption of the technology also offers the potential of improving air quality in currently polluted cities.
