Electric Car Charged While Driving: e-RoadArlanda

by: Moon Apple

It sounds like an ideal solution: electric vehicles that charge because they drive on a particular road, instead of connecting them to a charging station. And such a road has just been opened in Sweden. The two-kilometer-long carriageway contains electrical rails that supply power to transport vehicles.

e-RoadArlanda electric charging device, truck, road

Unfortunately, you can not drive 1, 2, 3 over it and immediately charge your car; owners must first have their vehicle fitted with a kind of retractable arm that makes contact with the rails.

Electric Car Charged: e-RoadArlanda

When designing the eRoadArlanda, as the road has been christened, everything seems to have been thought of. For example, the rails only give power when a car is above it, and only short stretches of road are supplied with electricity at the same time. When a vehicle stops on the road, the power is broken. The system can calculate the energy consumption of the car or truck so that electricity costs per vehicle and user can be written off.

Is A Road With e-RoadArlanda Dangerous?

Even then, it may seem dangerous: a road with rails with electricity, but the road is designed so that people and animals walking over it are not at risk. The rails on the surface are grounded to prevent shocks, and the conductor itself is buried deeper. To get a power shock, you should sit on your hands and knees with a fork between the rails, but then a fast-moving car is an immediate danger.

We will continue because rain is no problem for the e-road. The road section contains drains truck's energy consumption after, and the contact arm attached to the vehicle is designed to push water out of the channel and gravel and other small obstacles. Moreover, the space between the rails is too tiny for cyclists to get stuck between them (that is different from tram rails).

Provide All Of Sweden With Electric Charging Devices

Truck, electric charging rails, snow

The road runs between the Cargo Terminal of Stockholm Arlanda airport and the Rosersberg logistics area outside the capital, and will now only be used by trucks. If that goes well, the Swedish transport administration plans to provide more highways in the country with the electric charging rails. We only wonder how they deal with thick packs of snow.

I'm interested in everything that has to do with sustainability. My house is solar powered and I have my own water supply and filtering system.  I grow my own vegetables and fruit. Most of the time I go on the road by bicycle and for long distances I use public transport.
