Message from the Chair - May 2020

Welcome to the IEEE Transportation Electrification Community! 

Our mission is to coordinate all things transportation within IEEE.  Honestly, our task gets bigger every day with applications that would have been thought of as “futuristic” if not downright crazy just a few year ago, from autonomous cars to fully electric airplanes.

Bollinger’s New Electric SUV and Pickup Show What’s Possible With EV Design

The Bollinger B1 SUV and B2 truck prove that electric vehicles don’t have to look or act like their gas-powered predecessors

By Lawrence Ulrich

MzY0NDEwNgA gasoline engine up front, a transmission in the middle, and a fuel tank in back: For decades, that’s the way most automobiles were designed.

Electricity has changed that equation. And the Bollinger B1 sport-utility and B2 pickup are among the new electric vehicles (EVs) that show car designers are taking full advantage of the freedoms afforded by electric propulsion.

Can Electric Cars on the Highway Emulate Plane-to-Plane Refueling?

On-the-road peer-to-peer charging depends on steerable booms to make the connection

by Philip E. Ross

Jet fighters can’t carry a huge tank of fuel because it would slow them down. Instead they have recourse to air-to-air refueling, using massive tanker planes as their gas stations. 

What if electric cars could do the same thing, while zooming down the highway? One car with charge to spare could get in front of another that was short of juice, and the two could extend telescopic charging booms until they linked together magnetically. The charge-rich car would then share some of its largesse. And to complete the aerial refueling analogy, just add a few big “tanker trucks” bearing enormous batteries to beef up the power reserves of an entire flotilla of EVs.
