A new wireless technology that helps an electric vehicle get charged while in motion is on trial here, officials said on Thursday.

The wireless charging unit is embedded beneath a 60-metre road stretch in the city and uses Shaped Magnetic Field in Resonance technology to charge vehicles while on the move, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said.

"The initial phase covers preparing the infrastructure and laying an embedded power-charging grid underneath a road strip for the dynamic wireless charging of electric vehicles and buses in motion," RTA said in a statement.

"It will also reduce pollution and will not block movement on the streets. They also expect the initiative to increase the number of electric vehicles in Dubai," the statement said.

The RTA has collaborated with the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority and Dubai Silicon Oasis for rolling out the project, the Khaleej Times reported.
