After four and a half years of research and development, the FABRIC EU-funded project concluded its activities at the end of June 2018 having achieved important results and innovations in the field of dynamic wireless charging for Electric Vehicles. On June 21-22, 2018, the consortium presented the results of its research work during a dedicated Final event and demonstration that was successfully organised in Turin and Susa, Italy. About 140 registered participants from automotive industries, suppliers, solution providers, road operators, research institutes and universities had the opportunity to attend the event and discuss in depth the project advances.
During the first day of the final event project results were unveiled in details through a number of technical presentations that took place in the framework of a specialised conference. Three sessions and one Round table discussion focused on the research results and innovative technological achievements of the project. The speakers’ presentations dealt with the FABRIC developed charging solutions and prototypes, the ICT needs and developments in FABRIC for on-road charging, the FABRIC demonstration of on-road charging solutions for EVs and feasibility analysis results for the technological viability of such solutions.
The conference was supplemented by a parallel exhibition through which the FABRIC partners showed their work and conclusions using videos and posters at specific slots during the conference breaks. In total 17 technical posters were presented which are available below.
Guided tours and live demonstrations were organised during the second day of the Final Event in Susa near Turin at the TECNOSITAF facilities to present the two FABRIC Dynamic Wireless charging solutions and research prototypes developed in the Italian test site by POLITO and SAET partners accordingly.
