The OLEV platform is the result of extensive research and development Korean Institute of advanced science and technology (KAIST). The technique is as follows: under a special strip, which is printed on asphalt, is the inductive charger. Passing over this strip, the vehicle will get energy-contact method: part of it is used for electric motors, and part is stored in onboard batteries.
In this way, the bus is powered directly during the movement, which eliminates long stops for charging. Besides obviating the need for pulling electrical wires above the roadway. Moreover, it offers the opportunity to significantly reduce the weight of onboard batteries, and this increases the efficiency of operation of transport.
