Abstract: 

Easy and convenient charging of electric cars is a desirable characteristic. Automatic cable-free conductive charging from road surface to cars is a potential possibility for simplifying the everyday life for users of electric cars, as well as increasing the efficiency of taxis and car pools. Charging infrastructure for electric cars could utilize the recent development for electric road systems (ERS) in which electrical energy is transferred during movement from the road infrastructure to the vehicle for both propulsion and charging of battery. However, continued development must be done before it is feasible to implement automatic conductive cable-free charging of cars.
