Utah State University moves forward with wireless electric "Aggie Bus"
USU has a Wireless Power Transfer team that is working with the USTAR Advanced Transportation Institute, located at USU. The bus is a "first-of-its-kind" prototype and tests show it can recharge at a power level of up to 25 kilowatts. USU researchers have been working on wireless charging for a while. Last summer, we learned about the in-road charging system, which at the time was limited to five kW. When we caught up with USU this spring, where we learned that 50-kW systems are on the radar, too. So, consider the Aggie Bus an important step in wireless charging, but certainly not the last one.
