Indiana is testing magnetizable concrete for wireless EV charging

Wireless charging might well be the next big revelation in EV infrastructure, and the state of Indiana is the latest to try it out. The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) and Purdue University have announced their plan to integrate wireless charging into the state’s highways thanks to a special magnetizable concrete, called “magment.”

Researchers are testing concrete that could charge your EV while you drive

Roads that can charge electric cars or buses while you drive aren’t a new concept, but so far the technology has been relatively expensive and inefficient. However, Indiana’s Department of Transport (INDOT) has announced that it’s testing a new type of cement with embedded magnetized particles that could one day provide efficient, high-speed charging at “standard roadbuilding costs,” Autoblog has reported.

Roads That Wirelessly Charge EVs Coming To Indiana

Part of the reason that some people don't want to embrace electric cars is that they find EVs to be inconvenient. You have long charging times and few chargers. One way to make things a little easier is to find a way of wirelessly charging your EV, which many manufacturers have figured out. For BMW, that means a pad on the floor of your home garage, but the real innovation that many are trying to get right and one that we've been told of many times before is wireless charging on the go. Kia has been working on this since 2018, and Jaguar is trialing the tech with electric taxis, but now the Indiana Department of Transport (INDOT) has announced its plans to build a wireless charging network.

Lane Restrictions Coming to I-69 Near Morgan Ave. in Evansville Starting 7/31

One of the sure signs of warmer weather in the Tri-State every year is the presence of orange construction barrels on the highways that criss-cross the area. I've seen some people jokingly comment on social media that the sight of orange barrels on the highway is so commonplace around here that Indiana should consider adopting it as the state flower. At least I think they were joking. It's hard to tell sometimes. Despite our feelings when we see the barrels, they are necessary to offer some element of safety to road crews doing whatever work they need to get done by (hopefully) getting those of us driving through those areas to slow down a bit.

Wireless EV charging via highway pavement to be tested in Indiana

Indiana will test wireless EV charging equipment embedded in highway pavement, allowing vehicles to charge as they drive. Testing will be done in three phases, with the first beginning this summer, according to an Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) press release (via The Drive). The first two phases will involve...

Wireless EV charging pavement trials to begin in Indiana

California may be the national leader in electric vehicle infrastructure, but it's Indiana that plans to trial some pretty impressive new pavement technology. The Drive first reported on the state's Department of Transportation announcement last week that it will test wireless EV charging pavement. The technology, magnetizable concrete, comes from a German startup called Magment. The idea is to fill up an EV's battery while you motor along the highway, which would be a true game-changer in charging infrastructure.

Indiana wants magnetic highways that wirelessly charge electric vehicles

This story originally featured on The Drive. The Indiana Department of Transport (INDOT) recently announced plans to build a pretty wild new wireless charging system as part of a research project. The pilot program will see a quarter-mile stretch of road fitted with wireless charging technology embedded onto the pavement so vehicles can charge while driving along (or parked). It’s not the first time someone’s tried something like this, but it’s the first time a U.S. department of transport has gone ahead with a confirmed project.
