Patent pending dimples provide friction for tires, while simultaneously providing an exceptionally smooth surface needed for the near-frictionless air bearing.

Tomorrow’s road transportation will be electric. No air-pollution, less noise, few moving parts, less maintenance, smoother, clean and green. According to today’s statement issued by Solstin.org, electrification of roads and vehicles is the next megatrend.
Wireless power frees the driver from range anxiety, because wireless power will eventually make unlimited range to every Wireless EV. Wireless power transfer is induction between a road coil and a vehicle coil. Closing the gap between the road and the vehicle enables more power transfer and lighter coils on the EV (U.S. Patent No. 8,556,050,) This is the breakthrough, Solstin said. High power transfer across a large gap created insurmountable weight on the EV. Lighter coils, especially with high-power transfer, is significant.
“The patent pending dimples improve traction for vehicles, yet do not impede the near-frictionless, electrical connection, because the dimples lie below the smooth surface,” explains Solstin. “The airbearing greatly reduces the size and weight of the electrical connection hardware.”
Just as Model T’s made automobiles affordable to the common man, wireless power transfer will eventually make high-power and unlimited range to every Wireless EV. Drivers won’t have to stop at charging stations. Roads deliver the power as they drive. Bryan Solstin believes the Wireless EV will be the next-generation supercar, and the technology will trickle down to the common EV. At that tipping point, internal combustion engines will evolve into small backup systems before disappearing altogether, in the same way the Model T displaced the ubiquitous horse. Electrification of roads and wireless power transfer is the next megatrend.
