In the near future electric vehicles can recharge their batteries while circulating, thanks to the FABRIC that Renault is developing alongside Qualcomm Technologies and Vedecom.
S[19459008i]sales electric vehicles are still far from representing a substantial market share, it is also true that the technology is improving day to day, offering greater autonomy for vehicles equipped with this type of engine.
And that may be one of the factors that many consumers are raised before purchasing an electric car, since the autonomy in many cases, tends to be an Achilles heel that ends up chasing away many customers, especially when you take into consideration its use in long-haul.
while there are already some manufacturers who are developing vehicles with a range of close to 500 kilometers, there is still the limitation related to charging times, as with a fast charging system is still required at least half an hour to achieve a charging of the batteries.
however there are those who already think in a new system of charging that you leave behind all those limitations. And this is precisely the project that Renault has between hands, which are currently being developed by Vedecom and Qualcomm Technologies. It is a recharging system of battery on the move called a FABRIC, which has already achieved satisfactory results.
Initially have installed a charging system to over 100 meters in a facility south of Versailles in France, which have managed to recharge the batteries of two Renault Kangoo Z. E. simultaneously. The system allowed to supply up to 20 kW of power while the vehicles drove at a speed of up to 100 Km/h.
Without a doubt, this is an important step forward, since the system can eliminate the problems of autonomy, they the charging of the batteries is carried out while the vehicle proceeds through the lane.
