ElectRoad wireless charging solution: Another idea for debunking?


Electroad wireless charging solution

Not really a new "development", but this news is just appeared in the hungarian news portals.

In the image video, they show an electric bus powered by wireless charges placed under the surface of the road. https://youtu.be/mkpcavw_vFI

In the "test footage video" they show a golf cart going slowly over the charger strip, but those wires looks a bit thin...

I guess the golf cart was using its own batteries, maybe the batteries were charged by the strip to some extent.


I recall China experimenting with something similar some years ago, except their bus used pantograph chargers. It ran on supercaps - they only last a few minutes, but that's long enough to get to the next stop. I don't want to think about the peak charging current though!
