Overcoming EV range anxiety wirelessly
The automotive industry is undergoing one of the biggest periods of change in its history as drivetrains migrate from the internal combustion engine (ICE) to electric motors. While technology development is making great strides in increasing the range of modern electric vehicles (EV), one of the greatest impediments to adoption is consumer concern about being stuck with a flat battery – the so-called ‘range anxiety’.
