Abstract

With the blooming growth of electric vehicles, the transportation system is in a critical stage of evolution and reformation. Due to their excellent flexibility and controllability, electric vehicles are becoming the solution for connected and automated vehicle technology. However, current transportation infrastructures are primarily designed for combustion engine vehicles and need improvements for electric vehicles. In highway scenarios especially, because the driving range of an electric vehicle is significantly limited by its battery capacity and charging rate, recent electric vehicles are not suitable for long-distance travel. Therefore, it is important to investigate their dynamic charging technology and improve the current roadway infrastructure to support more electric vehicles.
