JERUSALEM, May 22 (Xinhua) -- Israeli hi-tech company Electreon Wireless began on Sunday a nonstop 100-hour test drive on a wireless charging road, according to a statement posted on its Twitter account on Monday.
The company created a road charging system based on special copper coils placed just below the surface of the road, allowing cars to be charged while they are being driven.
The 1,500-km drive, due to end on Thursday, is performed on a specially-built 200-meter test road at Electreon's headquarters in the coastal village of Beit Yanai in central Israel.
Earlier this month, Electreon launched a public bus route equipped with wireless charging technology in Bad Bellingen, Germany.
The company also signed agreements with its partners on building wireless charging roads in the United States and several other European countries.
