Electric Drive System for Automatic Guided Vehicles Using Contact-free Energy Transmission

Four technologies, combining mainly innovative solutions, offer the possibility of clean and flexible vehicles, all using only electricity. The main common components are contact-free energy transmission, storage on super-capacitors, holonome axles integrating wheel-motors and automatic guiding. Moreover, the complete energetic chain is managed by power electronics. Their applications are mainly in the field of public and industrial transportation. Several applications are described: electric busses, automatic guided vehicles for container handling, automatic people movers and automatic surveillance vehicles. For more information please visit
