Eyes of the World Watching Israel’s Smartroad!8/4//23 By Tim Buck
“In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”
Most countries want it, but no one has it… except Israel.
Israeli startup Electreon is testing a half-mile stretch of road in Tel Aviv, opening next year. Provided all goes to plan, 11 miles of the smart road will then be installed between the city of Eilat and the nearby Ramon International Airport in southern Israel.
Additionally, Electreon is set to install an electric stretch of road that will charge passing electric vehicles in France, following its victory in a public tender. Together with European toll road operator VINCI, Electreon’s Wireless Electric Road System (ERS) will be built into a section of the A10 highway, South West of Paris.
“We are honored that Electreon has been selected as the on-the-go wireless charging technology for France’s first ERS deployment,” said Oren Ezer, CEO and co-founder of Electreon.
The US market is new territory for Electreon. Earlier this month, the company opened an office in Los Angeles and hired Corey Johnson, former spokesperson for the New York City Council, as strategic advisor for the New York region. “We are excited to enter the U.S. market and collaborate with industry leaders to further enhance the country’s mobility ecosystem,” said Stefan Tongur, vice president of business development for Electreon in the US.
Electreon, Ford Developing In-Road Charging System
Electreon was awarded the contract to build an Electric Road System (ERS) in Detroit as part of a pilot inductive vehicle charging programme. Electreon will work with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), the Michigan Office of Future Mobility and Electrification (OFME) and the Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC).
The Israeli company will lead the design and evaluation, testing and implementation of the pilot programme, among other tasks, according to a press release. The project is currently planned for a section of road up to one mile long in Detroit and will include dynamic and stationary wireless charging stations for different types of electric vehicles. Autonomous vehicles are also to be included.
God Blesses Israel
It seems strange to read that the highly sophisticated countries of America and France need an Israeli firm to create a while-you-drive electric charging system. The article reveals that the installation is not intended for France only, but literally the entire world. While the world turns increasingly anti-Israel, at the same time, they find themselves depending on the little Jewish nation more than ever.
