'EVER' Project Looks To The Past, Future

Old coots like me (particularly those of us from Europe) probably recall a time when electrified public transportation was very common - buses, tram cars and so on. Well, think of a system that could provide power to electric automobiles but without electrified tracks, pantographs, etc. - effectively giving "unlimited" range to your electric car. The EVER project (Electric Vehicle on Electrified Roadway) in Japan is looking into that possibility. Early days yet, but an interesting idea.
