Wireless Charging of Electric Vehicles

Road transportation, which accounts for 23 percent of US total energy consumption, 59 percent of petroleum consumption, and 22 percent of greenhouse gas emissions (Davis et al. 2016), is undergoing a major transformation with the advent of ridesharing, autonomous driving, and vehicle electrification. Collectively these technologies, in conjunction with renewable sources of electricity, have the potential to dramatically reduce the negative impact of road transportation on the health of the planet. The successful convergence of these technologies will require electric vehicles (EVs) that are low cost and fully autonomous. These attributes can be realized through wireless charging.
