One of the biggest impediments to widespread market adoption, according to a New York-based startup, is the power cord, a problem they’ve solved by creating wireless power stations for electric vehicle fleets. The company, called HEVO Power, has entered into a contract with the Department of Public Safety at New York University (NYU) to build two charging stations for their security team’s electric vehicles. HEVO Power’s wireless charging stations resemble manhole covers and start charging when a vehicle equipped with a receiving unit stops above them.
