Utah State University has reportedly approved the installation of an on-campus test track that can charge electric vehicles wirelessly while in motion.

As the Associated Press reports (via Washington Times): “The USU Board of Trustees approved the deal…the next stop for the proposal is the Utah state Board of Regents.”

The test track will accommodate standard passenger cars all the way on up to large buses.

Per the Associated Press: “The plan calls for Woodbury Corporation of Utah and USU to build a 4,800-square-foot facility and an oval-shaped vehicle test track at the interdisciplinary USU innovation Campus research center.”

The University hopes to begin the self-funded project this fall. There’s no deadline set for completion as of yet.
