Designed by Christian Forg this alternative transport system concpet called Speedway is designed to enhance the currently limited range and speed on electric vehicles. By putting a linear motor into the highways to extend propulsion it is embedded underneath the pavement and uses a drifting magnetic field to drive the vehicle. Check out the video after the jump.
contact-free operating linear motor can be installed beneath existing roads and therefore offer the possibility to implement the new system step-by-step, without derailing the existing system. During the ride, the infrastructure can be used to charge the onboard batteries
