A number of obstacles for electric vehicles is the battery, ranging from a high price and durability. But a university in Japan, named Toyohashi University of Technology in collaboration with Taisei Corp have recently released an electric vehicle without the battery.
Although still a prototype, this vehicle has been worked on for five years by a team from the university. So how does it work, the electric vehicles without the battery?

This vehicle receives energy from the street through a street that had been implanted tissue special plate. This energy is then transmitted securely to the vehicle through the tire has been designed in such a way.
To demonstrate how it works, the university build a short path to run the prototype vehicle. The length of the road was only 29.8 meters and the vehicle speed of about 10 kilometers per hour.
"The car's acceleration is very smooth, and was driving very comfortable," said Professor Takashi Ohira, who was driving the vehicle prototype and a member of the development team.
Various ways of electric vehicle development has been made since a few years ago. If the technology is finally answer of the question, then it should be able to find another solution, that the government was willing to build a path to the required specifications of this vehicle.
Surely this is going to be another obstacle, because currently there is no road that comes with a special plate to deliver electricity earlier. Although the security, this idea is fairly safe because there is no power that would endanger other road users. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | KYODO NEWS]
