【谷歌为无人驾驶汽车添新筹码:测试无线充电技术】根据谷歌母公司Alphabet提交给联邦通信委员会的资料显示,谷歌正开发新技术,用无线充电来替代有线充电。谷歌采取两家公司的设计,系统会将发射器埋在地下,电能从发射器传向电动汽车底部的接受器,采用的传输方式为磁共振感应。

Google filings suggest it wants its self-driving cars to charge wirelessly

谷歌

According to documents filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) — and found by IEEE Spectrum — Google is looking to cut the cord on its self-driving car, the power cord, that is.

In February of last year, HevoPower, a New York-based start-up received permission from the FCC to install its experimental charger at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California. In July, Momentum Dynamics, followed suit by installing its own charger at an address believed to associated with Google’s ultra-secretive, “X” division — which is currently working on the autonomous car.

The filings detail Google’s testing of two wireless charging systems that would essentially beam power to the underside of an electric vehicle from an embedded transmitter that looks a lot like a manhole cover.

The science isn’t at all dissimilar to that of wireless charging matts that you’d use to charge your mobile device, just on a much larger scale.

Currently, the technology would just provide freedom from plugging your car in at night, but the future could feature embedded chargers that keep your car juiced as it drives.
