Solar Roads, Charging Roads, And The Future Of Transportation | FastCompany
Here are two great innovations, that could potentially have a profound impact on the future of transportation.
Solar Roads: Imagine that you could replace the concrete or asphalt with solar cells beneath a layer of glass. Operating at 15% efficiency the U.S. road system would provide more than four times our current electricity needs, or about as much electricity as the whole world uses. It’s a lot of potential power.
Charging Roads: What if an electric vehicle can be recharged without wires while on road. Using magnetic induction technology, a company called Wave is trying to achieve just that.
