The Illinois Tollway is examining the possibility of embedding equipment into I-294 that would charge electric vehicles as they drive along the road.

Nice, but simply adding DCFC charge stations every 70 miles would be much more helpful.
And much, much cheaper.
Charging a vehicle while it is in motion is vastly harder/more expensive than charging it while it is parked. Also less efficient. We don't really need a study to determine that.
But just imagine how much construction companies can charge to build and install the equipment for this test study, all coming from those wonderful barely accountable tax payer dollars...
