AMiCC will demonstrate how wireless technology can unlock a range of the blockers to the market transitioning to electric vehicles and decarbonized cities
AMiCC’s main objective is to evaluate the benefits of static wireless charging systems through the deployment of an innovative charging system to enable fleet vehicles with short dwell times and high utilization to switch to electric when they would otherwise have been unable to do so.
This is supported by development of an innovative hardware solution to provide standardisation across the industry for high-power smart charging.
Our partners will deploy and evaluate wireless charging in three different case studies, where dwell times are short and infrastructure opportunities are often limited due to space constraints:
Create a standardised EV wireless conversion framework…
…that will make a variety of vehicle makes and models interoperable with a variety of static charging ground plates. This will be demonstrated using two vehicle types in two fleet scenarios.
Create a set of standards for wireless adoption…
…to standardise vehicle conversion across multiple vehicle types. The project will work these through with UK Government to become a code of best practice and subsequently implement into industry.
Implement intelligent algorithms…
…that will review vehicle movement and identify optimum charging behaviour and locations for fleets in order to facilitate and maintain an optimal EV uptake strategy.
