Lehrte, 18.12.2023 - On December 6, 2023, the official closing event of the LaneCharge project took place at Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts. The consortium partners presented the results of the research project, which has been running since 2019. The aim of the project is to charge electric vehicles inductively, e.g. when parked, at traffic lights, at a cab rank or in the garage.

As part of the project, a 90 m long test track with 12 induction coils has been created on the grounds of Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts. The induction coils are integrated into the road surface and the components of the system blend in visually with the streetscape; additional charging points are no longer required. The adapted vehicles drive along the road and are inductively charged as soon as they come to a stop above the induction coils.

The technology for the exact positioning of the vehicles using RFID technology comes from Götting KG. The two-dimensional RFID localization sensor HG G-98830 under the vehicle and passive RFID tags in the ground (so-called transponders) are used.
In addition to Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts, the Technical University of Baunschweig and the companies EDAG Engineering GmbH and SUMIDA Components & Modules GmbH are partners in the alliance. Götting KG, Enercity AG, Hallo Taxi 3811 GmbH and the state capital of Hannover are involved as associated partners.
