Smart Charging Roads for Electric Vehicles

Dutch Technology for Roads in the Netherlands

Next year, the Netherlands will see the first of what could be many “smart roads.”

Emerging from the Dutch companies Studio Roosegaarde and Heijmans Infrastructure, the concept—which won “Best Future Concept” at the recent Dutch Design Awards—entails roads treated with special paint that would glow in the dark to illuminate night traffic, special “charging lanes” that’ll allow electric vehicles to charge on the go, and intelligent traffic lights that will sense approaching vehicles, brighten, and then dim after the vehicle passes by.

It all sounds quite sci-fi, especially when considered from the perspective of readers in the U.S., where green technology and EVs are still struggling.
