The Italian test site will be based on an existing test track specifically designed for testing wireless technology under different conditions in urban environment. The test site is currently conceived to test static inductive charging and will have a charge while driving testing capability while it will implement several ICT devices to be tested.
The test site is conceived to be a living lab so the plant (electrical switchboard, electric supply, . .) and the safety issues are already addressed with a modular approach in order to allow any further experimental with minimum “tailoring” costs.

: close to A32 Motorway Torino – Bardonecchia, c/o Safe Driving Track.


Available Infrastructure: two paved lanes equipped with embedded induction loops able to recharge the electric vehicles while they are driven electric distribution and communication network.

General Features:

  • Traffic information
  • Management of the electric vehicles
  • Vehicle detection
  • Evaluation of on-road charging solutions for future electric vehicles
  • Simulation of urban and extra-urban environment
  • Electric power supply: > 50 kW

The FABRIC test bed will be designed and constructed in accordance with safety guidelines and standards to provide at least 260 m of electric car and LDV dynamic charging infrastructure. The site will be able to support for at least one vehicle and possibly three powered simultaneously (~20 kW each). There will also be smart grid interface including commercial and industrial (C&I) electricity meter capable of 1 second readings. The Italian Test Site will also implement the SAET SPA system that is constituted by coils supplied by loadresonant power frequency converters operating at a frequency range of 10-150 kHz and a pick –up system on board of EV. The system will be installed on additional 50m of the Italian test track (additional in respect to the Politecnico of Torino implementation).
