Imagine roads that are built to last for twenty years, never have snow and ice on them, generate electricity and warn drivers of potential hazards ahead. Imagine if this roadway had built in wireless charging platforms that would allow electric vehicles unlimited driving distances.
Well, this is actually happening.
Solar Roadways has built their prototype and is crowdsourcing their seed money for their first production facility.
Here is an introduction to the technology

combining this technology with Wireless Charging for electric vehicles will allow unlimited mileage for electric vehicles. Imagine never having to stop for gasoline (or to plug in) EVER!
The wireless power transfer is up to 90% efficient, meaning only 10% of the power is lost between the transmitter and receiver. The power can also transfer through roadway materials such as concrete and asphalt, meaning it could be embedded in the ground under a parking space.
