Tel Aviv, a city in Isreal, is doing something that’s never been done before. It is creating wireless electric roads which will charge public transportation. The idea is to lessen pollution and fight climate change.
Sounds unbelievable – but it’s true.
The way it works is that a set of copper coils are placed under the cement part of the road. Energy is transferred from the electricity grid to the road infrastructure, which then communicates with the approaching vehicles – that have receivers installed on their floors to transmit energy directly to the battery while driving.
The city has partnered with two companies – one is called ElectReon, that develops systems that charge electric vehicles while they are moving. the other is Dan Bus Company.
This is being tried out in a small stretch of the city right now. If the testing goes well, then the municipality of Tel Aviv will look into expanding to more parts of the city. .
Where is Israel?
Israel is a country in Western Asia. It is located on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea.
Israel shares its borders with Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. It is where the world’s largest population of Jews live. Jerusalem is the capital (although it is a disputed area between Israel and Palestine). Tel Aviv is the country’s economic and technological center.
There has been a long-stnading conflict between Israel and the Arab world, over the territories – both claim the city of Jerusalem to be thiers. many wars have been fought and tension continues till today.
