Join us on Wednesday, February 13, 2013, from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. in WEB 2250 as Ian Walton presents “Shaped Charge Perforating: from Bazookas to Oil Production.” All Graduate Students and Faculty are welcome!
Join us as Wesley Smith, CEO and Director of WAVE, Inc. provides us with a presentation of WAVE, Inc., a Utah State University technology spin-out company. WAVE tackles the problem of heavy and expensive vehicle batteries through wireless power, transferring electricity between vehicle and roadway. Limitations of on-board energy storage (batteries) represent the largest roadblock to full-scale electric vehicle (EV) market adoption in these sectors. Solving battery limitations related to weight, cost, range, recharge speed, and user behavior is the highest priority for the EV sector.
WAVE overcomes battery limitations in EVs by delivering energy wirelessly to stationary vehicles using electrical infrastructure embedded in the roadway and vehicle-mounted receiver plates. Charging vehicles wirelessly enables them to reduce on-board battery size by up to 85% and increases battery life by avoiding deep cycling.
Date: Wednesday, February 6, 2013
Time: 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Location: WEB 2250 (Warnock Engineering Building, Room 2250)
