Arena Del Futuro, the experimentation of dynamic induction charging starts


The & quot; Arena Del Futuro & quot; project, announced in May 2021, & egrave; become reality. It is a circuit built by A35 Brebemi with the aim of field testing dynamic induction charging for electric vehicles. A project that & egrave; was carried out thanks to the collaboration of important partners including Aleatica, ABB, Electreon, FIAMM Energy Technology, IVECO, IVECO Bus, Mapei, Pizzarotti, Politecnico di Milano, Prysmian, Stellantis, TIM, Universit & agrave; Roma Tre and Universit & agrave; of Parma, Fire Brigade and Traffic Police.


Some specially prepared vehicles will be used for the experimentation. These are the electric 500 and the Iveco E-Way Bus . According to what was communicated, the first tests have already given; good results. L & rsquo; goal & egrave; demonstrate that the Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer (DWPT) system may be a viable solution to decarbonise the transport sector. But how does this charging technology work?

With the DWPT, electric vehicles can recharge in the mode & agrave; & ldquo; wireless & rdquo; traveling on wired lanes thanks to an innovative system of loops positioned under the asphalt. This technology is adaptable to all vehicles equipped with a special & ldquo; receiver & rdquo; which transfers the incoming energy from the road infrastructure to the battery with the aim of generating a mobility system; with & ldquo; zero emissions & rdquo ;. Connectivity advanced through IOT (Internet of Things) technologies will guarantee; at the same time, maximum road safety by allowing constant dialogue between motorways and the vehicles on them. The road pavement will be & agrave; also optimized to make it more & ugrave; durable without altering the efficiency and effectiveness of the inductive charge.

Furthermore, the experimentation will allow; university partners to evaluate the possible environmental advantages and economic benefits that will derive from DWPT and SWPT (or static charging, tested for stationary or parked vehicles). It will therefore be interesting to find out what the results obtained from this project will be and if will lead to some practical application .

In fact, with the rapid evolution of electric cars, the problems of charging and autonomy should become less and less felt. Such a solution could probably turn out to be more & ugrave; useful for commercial vehicles and in particular for heavy vehicles. However, you will need to & agrave; also understand what will be the costs to implement this technology on a large scale.
