Research Challenges and Opportunities in Wireless Charging Electric Vehicles

Presented by Computer & Information Systems Division
Dec. 10 | 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenter: Young Jae Jang, Ph.D., assistant professor, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)

Young Jae Jang will introduce the innovative wireless charging electric vehicle which charges the battery wirelessly from the charging infrastructure installed under the road. The technology is innovative in that the vehicle is charged while it is even in motion. One example of the commercialized system is the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) wireless charging EV shuttle, which is called Online Electric Vehicle (OLEV) currently operating in the KAIST campus.
