Integrated Roadways has announced its partnership with Cisco to expand real-world, in-road wireless electric vehicle charging capabilities in the U.S. This announcement follows the recent Cisco Live conference where leaders from Cisco and Ford Motor Company discussed technology’s central role in transforming the auto industry and announced actionable plans with the City of Detroit to make infrastructure advancements a reality. Integrated Roadways’ wireless EV charging capabilities were on display during a demonstration earlier this year in Detroit.
In addition to its dynamic wireless EV charging capabilities, Integrated Roadways’ patented precast concrete Smart Pavement sections have embedded software-upgradeable sensors to track real-time traffic data and technology offering a menu of offerings, including Wi-Fi6, 5G, BLE, and connectivity for autonomous vehicles, the company says.
Integrated Roadway’s Smart Pavement is already installed in Denver, part of a pilot program to develop the company’s Traffic Data as a Service (TDaaS) technology, which collects data from a network of sensors embedded in the roadway. Smart Pavement will also be installed in a high-volume intersection in Lenexa, Kansas, as part of a 10-year pilot program for the city.
