Subsequently, the wireless charging technology for electric cars developed by Obayashi and Denso can be used in 2025.
autos.id In recent years, the electric car trend has become more and more popular. Every global car brand is competing to present various electric car products that are certainly much more environmentally friendly. It did not stop there, because several innovations have been made to facilitate the use of electric cars. This includes charging the electric car, which may not require a cable to charge the car.
[tps_footer]Currently, Japanese construction group Obayashi and auto parts supplier Denso are developing electric car charging without the need for a charging or wireless charging cable.
Innovation in electric car charging
As reported by Nikkei on Wednesday (21/9/2022), Obayashi and Denso are in fact developing a technology that allows cars to be recharged without having to use a charging cable. In charging this wireless charging technology can work on a small electric car that can run at a speed of 15 km / h on an uninterrupted path of electric coils under the road surface.
Afterwards this charging device which does not require a cable can work around the clock so that it can be used by all electric cars at any time. By not needing to use a cable when charging this electric car, it will indirectly eliminate the need to use large batteries and expand electric car trips.
Later the use of wireless charging or wireless charging on this electric car will use magnetic field induction. This means that the electric current can be piped into coils on the road and generate electric current already installed in electric cars.
In this development, Obayashi will use a kind of reinforced concrete capable of increasing the durability of the flooring. In addition, this reinforced concrete will allow the road rollers that can be fixed to the road surface to provide an even more optimal charging effect.
Then Denso himself will work on the coil performance and power source to see how it works once installed in an electric car. With the use of this technology using an electric coil under the road will cause a loss of power transmission. And the challenge that needs to be addressed in this development process is the cost of construction which tends to be more expensive than conventional power tools.
For this reason, both Obayashi and Denso continue to collect data from various tests carried out in private. Obayashi and Denso ensure that the use of wireless charging can be installed and tested by the public as early as 2025.
