The Future of Public Transit is Wireless

How do you safely deliver high amounts of energy to mass transit vehicles and do it wirelessly?

Ask South Korea's Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. There, you can find a lot of "first evers" when it comes to exhausting the term, "wireless charging".

As if the era of electric vehicles isn't advancing quickly enough, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) has brought OLEV, the Online Electric Vehicle Project. OLEV introduces to the world for the first time, a far more superior way of efficiently charging the battery-powered electric vehicle through something called Shaped Magnetic Field in Resonance technology, and this has led to all kinds of money- and energy-saving bullet points for the country in this area.

Shaped Magnetic Field in Resonance is the first-ever technology that delivers energy whether the vehicle is stationary or in motion, and has caused people to vouch for this incredibly eco-friendly, pollution-free, and more efficient way of public transit and vehicle re-powering.

One of the #1 ways OLEV is distinguished from other electric vehicles is that it uses a recharging mechanism that is wireless. Not only is convenience guaranteed but safety as well. Electromagnetic radiation are at such low levels that they are far below international standards.

And it is only when the vehicle passes the power lines that they supply power to the OLEV in the vehicle, and not when pedestrians or other vehicles are in motion. Thus, preventing magnetic fields when they're not needed; this is safe and prevents wasting energy.

Doing away with charging station infrastructures

With the OLEV, a vast amount of infrastructure space can be saved. Separate charging stations aren't needed. The underground power grid can be placed where the vehicles are parked. This means saving trees, less air pollution, and making the most of the little real estate like a country as South Korea has.

With more battery-powered electric vehicles and innovative ways of keeping them powered up, that is, wirelessly, one can only imagine how the world can start changing with less reliance on the traditional methods of re-fueling, (i.e. gasoline.)
