Abstract: 

Inductive charging could give electric vehicles yet another competitive advantage over fossil-driven vehicles in that users seldom or never have to think about refueling. However, when about to recharge the vehicle, the secondary, receiver coil must be precisely positioned above the primary, transmitter coil in order to achieve high transmitted power and efficiency. Manually maneuvering a vehicle to this position has in our studies proven to be a challenging task, especially when using tight or public parking spaces. This article investigates the parking precision challenges connected with induction charging along with possible solutions, including fully automated parking.
