Elonroad develops a high-tech electric road system – it auto charges electric vehicles when parked as well as when driving. The solution is a conductive charging infrastructure, transferring 300 kW with 97% efficiency, designed for all electric vehicles (EVs), e.g., cars, taxis, buses and trucks, that operate in urban and highway conditions. EVs that connect to Elonroad obtain direct power drive energy; and charge their batteries to continue driving when disconnected from the electric road system (ERS). Elonroad goes beyond electrifying roads - it pioneers road digitization. Our ERS is equipped with IoT sensors and software that captures and analyses transportation data to generate intelligent feedback that interacts in real-time with moving and stationary vehicles.
