Honda electric car drives itself into a home carport to recharge wirelessly
Engineers at Honda Motor, Japan are working on an electric vehicle that would drive itself into a home carport, where its battery would be recharged wirelessly. Testing of the autonomous technology got underway at a demonstration test house just outside Tokyo on Monday. With the system, the driver would stop the Honda EV outside his or her home and get out. The driver would use a smartphone to instruct the electric vehicle to drive itself into the carport. The Honda EV pinpoints the location from a map in its computer.
