Tonight's TV, talk of charging large EV trucks from embedded energy transfer coupling coils in main highways; so as the truck travels along at 90 Kph it gets pulses of charge current via a coupled coil under the track interacting with the perhaps kilometers of coils in the road.

Nice idea in the lab, will never work on NZ highways as our roads are too bumpy, the coil-coil coupling distance would be all over the place with terrible efficiency.
