Abstract

This paper reports on the development of the Waseda Electric micro Bus (WEB). The bus features a non-contact inductive power supply (IPS) system to enable rapid, safe and convenient charging. On-road tests were carried out to verify the practicality of the short range, rapid charging concept, and to determine improvements in environmental performance over a conventional bus. Across three different road tests, significant improvements of between 38% and 68% in CO2 emissions were found.
