SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah State University (USU) technology spin-out, WAVE Technologies Inc. (video) is slated to deploy its first commercial electrically-powered bus, furnished by Complete Coach Works, in the coming weeks on the University of Utah (U of U) campus.

WAVE is attempting to change the way public transportation systems operate by wirelessly charging the battery from a charging pad located under the road surface. Additionally, charging can take place through snow, ice and mud, according to a KSL.com report. For the full story, click here.

    There have been several fleets of wireless inductively charged buses running for a number of years. In Turin and Genoa Italy, buses have been in operation with Conductix-Wampfler system for over 10 years! Bombardier has their Primove system running in Germany and is nearly ready to start service in Belgium. This story is not accurate. Maybe whoever sent out the press release hasn't done his or her research.
