From the Electric Roads and Vehicles Conference

Electricity is the future of transportation according to engineers at the Electric Roads and Vehicles Conference in Park City, Utah, today. Presenter John Boys, Professor of Electronics at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, pioneered the technology called "inductive power transfer" that allows vehicles to receive electric power from roads, doing away with the need to fuel up or plug in. With escalating gas prices Boys says we need an alternative to keep our cities moving.
