Magnetic Roadway System

Magnetic roadway system (MRS) is a concept for using linear synchronous motors (LSMs) embedded in road surfaces to move vehicles along within freight or specially designated vehicle corridors. MRS can be particularly beneficial for moving large trucks, as electrifying these heavy-duty vehicles would result in large reductions in petroleum consumption and toxic diesel emissions. Vehicles would use permanent magnets to react against the moving magnetic field generated by the LSM. MRS powered trucks may offer greater flexibility and lead to a broader range of applications by enabling "dual mode" operations combining LSM technology with other forms of propulsion.

For example:

In the latter application, the LSM could also recharge the truck's electric batteries while moving the vehicle. This could greatly reduce the number of batteries required to achieve a given operating range, accelerating the adoption of battery-electric vehicles.
