World’s first electrified road for charging vehicles opens in Sweden

NO BATTERIES, NO PLUG-INS, SO NO NEED TO STOP TO CHARGE


Wireless overcomes the need to stop at charging stations. Lack of charging infrastructure, along with price and battery range, are the key issues to the mass adoption of electric cars.

The world’s first electrified road that recharges the batteries of cars and trucks driving on it has been opened in Sweden.

About 2km (1.2 miles) of electric rail has been embedded in a public road near Stockholm, but the government’s roads agency has already drafted a national map for future expansion.

Sweden’s target of achieving independence from fossil fuel by 2030 requires a 70% reduction in the transport sector.

The technology behind the electrification of the road linking Stockholm Arlanda airport to a logistics site outside the capital city aims to solve the thorny problems of keeping electric vehicles charged, and the manufacture of their batteries affordable.

 

Energy is transferred from two tracks of rail in the road via a movable arm attached to the bottom of a vehicle. The design is not dissimilar to that of a Scalextric track, although should the vehicle overtake, the arm is automatically disconnected.

Identify the damaged tissues before your naked eye can spot them!

Thanks to advances in flexible electronics, Berkeley engineers, in collaboration with colleagues at UC San Francisco, have created a new "smart bandage" that uses electrical currents to detect early tissue damage from pressure ulcers, or bedsores, before they can be seen by human eyes and while recovery is still possible. ⁠ ♥️Keep learning?❤️ @engineering_geek @asrelectronicsgeek Share With Our #Friends ?‍??‍?

No more jet lag: Scientists develop wearable technology that will help stabilize your internal clock

The researchers demonstrated a series of algorithms which can analyse biometric information recorded by a smart device, and then recommend the best combination of sleep and light to help a person readjust their circadian rhythm.
