Vision

Paving the way for large scale deployment of electromobility

image001The vision of FABRIC is the large-scale adoption of pure Electric Vehicles (EVs) in future transportation systems. This wide deployment requires mature EV technology and advanced charging solutions that provide a user experience similar to today's cars. 

The main challenge that FABRIC is tackling is “range anxiety” that is caused by the limited range current EVs are suffering from. In the long term, electric vehicles might be able to collect energy from the road, in a conductive or contactless mode. 

Compared to the current paradigms of larger installed storage capacity, fast charge or switchable batteries, advanced on-road charging solutions will improve the driving range and battery lifetime of the Full Electric Vehicles (FEV) as well as their energy efficiency and price, given the need for a smaller battery.
