Clemson working on wireless electric car charging

The Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research and the S.C. Technology Aviation Center have agreed to work with Oak Ridge National Laboratory to support a three-year program to develop and test wireless charging systems for electrical vehicles.

The $1.5 million in research for Clemson is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.

Wireless charging, when applied to stop-and-go or vehicle-in-motion battery charging, could lead to extended range and downsized batteries for electric vehicles and could speed development of electric-powered passenger vehicles.

Clemson research professor Joachim Taiber will lead the project that will validate the Oak Ridge-developed technology, and develop communication networks for the wireless charging system.
