SWEDEN UNVEILS WORLD'S FIRST ROAD THAT RECHARGES VEHICLES.

A truck drives through a road that recharges vehicles in Sweden. The world's first road that will allow vehicles to be recharged while being driven on it has been launched in Sweden, according to a joint press release from eRoad Arlanda and construction firm NCC on Apr 12, 2018. The road works by transferring energy to the vehicle from a rail in the road through a movable arm. The electrified road is divided into sections - each section measuring 50m. Every individual section is only powered when a vehicle is above it. The current is disconnected when a vehicle stops. The newly developed road aims to be a sustainable and cost-effective solution to allow existing public roads to be electrified and help to create a future of fossil fuel-free road transport.
