London will try wireless charging bus next year
London's sophisticated and complex public transport network is second to none in the world. However, due to insufficient charging equipment, even a new hybrid bus with hybrid power will inevitably cause damage to the environment. According to reports, the London Transport Authority (TFL) is working hard to improve this situation - to build a new station charging facility, and is expected to begin testing of new wireless charging bus stations on the streets of London next year.
Although public transportation in London is still advancing towards high-tech roads, at present, buses and trains here do not make the ultimate in environmental protection. Although the Transport for London has deployed 800 hybrid buses and a small number of pure electric buses, it is not easy to continue to recharge the vehicles after they have been away from the terminal for miles.
However, in order for these clean energy vehicles to operate as efficiently as possible, Transport for Transport is planning to launch a new test – the establishment of four bus stops with built-in charging equipment in the east of London, waiting for passengers to get on and off in the Enviro 400H E400 hybrid bus. During the process, it is wirelessly charged.
After the London Transport Bureau completes the necessary facilities next year, the charging system will be the first to test the hybrid electric bus line 69 (between Canning Town Station and Watsons Road Station). Regular replenishment at the bus station means that the bus can run on the battery for as long as possible (instead of switching to heavily polluted diesel), which will reduce operating costs and the environmental impact of non-clean energy.
The London Transport Authority said it hopes to use this test to estimate whether such a wireless charging station can meet the power needs of buses that are full of passengers and commuters throughout the city.
