Today on Meaghan's Minute, brought to you by Memory Protection Devices, HEVO Power is developing resonance-based wireless charging systems for electric vehicles, and disguising them as manholes.

The plan is to deploy the new wireless charging systems in New York’s Washington Square Park by early 2014.

The systems will come in three parts, which includes a power station, a vehicle receiver, and a smartphone app that let’s drivers line up their vehicle with the station, and keep tabs on charging.

In its current form, Hevo’s system is classed as a Level 2 charging station, with 220-volts and up to 10 kilowatts of energy being transmitted from the pad to the vehicle, focusing on Neighborhood Electric Vehicles with small footprints, low speeds, and minimal battery capacity.
