Meerut: Like diesel and petrol vehicles, now electric vehicles will also be able to cover long distances, thanks to the invention of two students of Meerut Institute of Engineering and Technology (MIET).
With the innovation of the Wireless Electric Vehicles Charging System by Sagar Kumar and Rohit Rajbhar, the electric vehicles will get charged while driving.
They said that electric vehicles are running on the roads to save the environment but due to the limited number of charging points, the vehicles cannot cover long distances. People face many problems due to this.
Sagar said that for this system, towers will be erected on the roadside and a receiver will be placed in the car. As soon as the car will come in the range of the tower, the car battery will start getting charged. Though the range of the receiver is too less but work is on to enhance its speed. It is just like a wireless mobile charger.
The proposal has been sent to NITI Aayog, which has provided financial aid of Rs 20,000.
“We had thought of the idea of Wireless Electric Vehicles Charging System long ago but were facing difficulties as we were not getting help from any quarter,” Rohit said.
“But when we contacted Atal Community Innovation Centre, our project got selected and we got funds and a lab for making a prototype, due to which the work is being carried out with ease,” Rohit added.
MIET vice-chairman Puneet Agarwal said: “Our college (in Meerut district of Uttar Pradesh) houses the Atal Community Innovation Centre, where students can innovate. We try to extend all possible help for their ideas.”
Senior scientist from the Regional Science and Technology Centre, Mahadev Pandey said this technique works on an electromagnetic force system.
A very good innovation has been made in the public interest, he added.
This technique can be a partner in the development of the country, provided its range is enhanced, he said.
