Intelligent Wireless Charging for Electric Buses in Smart City

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 28% of all 2011 greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) for the US are from transportation related sources. These are the second largest sources of GHGs in the US after electricity. The US is also the second highest CO₂ emitter after China. These emissions are primarily from burning fossil fuels for transportation usage. While vehicles have become more environmentally friendly with lower emissions, there has still been a steady rise in GHGs from these modes of transportation. The EPA estimates that there has been an increase of ~18% since 1990 for transportation related GHGs, which is most likely due to more vehicles on the road!
