In-motion WPT technology has tremendous potential to reduce the cost and environmental impact of modern automotive transportation which has been demonstrated through recent life cycle assessments and technoeconomic analyses. High-fidelty vehicle models have the potential to more rigorously define these befenits since existing research has only used simplified models. Additionally, these benefits may be compounded when integrating current autonomous technologies into the models. This presentation outlined current high-fidelity vehicle modeling for in-motion WPT as well as autonomous vehicle development that is ongoing at Western Michigan University.
