There will soon be wired up roads that can charge your car. This would start as something of convenience, you could put it in your driveway and simply pull up and start charging without having to plug in a cable. It would also be for buses to stay charged during the harsh Nordic winters without having to stop and recharge at a specific place, they could just stop at a bus stop and charge there. It’ll take a while for this feature to come to highways but we’ll see it sometime. This is possible by the high frequency AC wires underneath the concrete or flooring material that transmit electricity to the cars receivers. This is related to engineering because they took something common like electric car charging and made it more simplistic and easier to use. This relates to the world because electronically charging cars may reduce pollution from gas.
