Autonomous Buses Fueled by Wireless Charging

Watch wireless charging power autonomous e-buses! In a first-ever commercial application of wireless charging for an autonomous electric e-bus, WiTricity Halo™ chargers are fueling YuTong Bus, the number one bus brand in China.

WiTricity Halo™ chargers simplify the charging experience by removing the need to plug in. This is particularly significant in transit applications, where the cords and cables required for plugging are heavy and awkward and could contribute to slips and falls, the leading cause of workers’ compensation claims for commercial drivers. As transit applications for autonomous shuttles and buses grow worldwide, wireless charging will play a key role in keeping those vehicles on the road.
