How Our Technology Works
Powerlane Corporation has a patented technology that would allow any electric vehicle to recharge its battery as it drives.
The three key components:
1. Conductive strips
Segmented and conductive strips run along the road, low enough for a car to drive over them at any rate of speed, and that allow for lane changes.
2. Retractable contacts
Retractable contacts are lowered by a driver to make contact with the road. A driver can easily lift or lower the contacts as needed.
3. Custom roadway control circuitry
Our custom roadway control circuitry energizes and de-energizes the road when a vehicle makes contact with the segmented strips. This ensures that the energized roadway can remain safe to pedestrian traffic.
By the end of 2013, the number of battery electric car models on the market could double to 20
