ELIX Wireless has developed Magneto Dynamic Coupling (MDC) technology and has been deploying wireless chargers for automobiles. They are in trials with EV companies in China and USA. Their solution uses low frequency, so no heat, no EMI, safe to use, has the ability to work in the rain, can push aside debris. They have built and deployed 7.7KW chargers, these are undergoing trials, the company is also making 3.3KW and 22KW chargers which will be beta tested in 2018.
Terrafugia's The Transition is the world’s first practical flying car. It offers the convenience of driving and the speed of flight, and will incorporate autonomous technologies that will make the Transition safer than any other small aircraft in the sky. Terrafugia has already developed and flown two full-scale prototypes, and has received all of the special legal approvals necessary to bring the Transition to market in the USA. And for the the Future, Terrafugia’s plans to later release the TF-X, a mass-market flying car with the potential to revolutionize the way people get around. An all-electric vehicle with vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capabilities and computer-controlled flight, the TF-X is the flying car of the future. This video was filmed at the IDTechEx Show! You can also watch Terrafugia's presentation video here.
Terrafugia CTO and Co-Founder Carl Dietrich presents Terrafugia's flying car in this presentation, including some of their innovations including sensing, IoT and autonomous systems. Terrafugia's mission is to create practical flying cars that enable a new dimension of personal freedom. With operational flying/driving prototypes and being acquired by Volvo Owner Geely. You can also watch the Interview video by Dr. Peter Harrop with Terrafugia here.

http://smartshuttle.ch provides public transportation in areas where it not widely available or difficult to provide. The shuttles are autonomous and provide a small amount of seats. The service is currently operating as a test service in Switzerland and some units have already been deployed. The shuttle can turn around automatically and can run on narrow streets and narrow turns. PostBus and the Mobility Lab Sion-Valais (City of Sion, Canton Valais, HeS-So, EPFL, Swiss Post) intend to use the SmartShuttle project to learn how to deploy autonomous shuttles in the public sphere.
The Postbus smartshuttle is a 100% electric powered and self driving mini bus. The bus can hold up to 11 people. The shuttle is currently in operation in Switzerland. The vehicle will stop itself to prevent it from running over people. It is developped in a cooperation between the French company Navya, Bestmile and the Swiss Carpostal system.
IDTechEx Chairman Dr Peter Harrop, reviews the Tesla Model X, discusses Elon Musk's future projects and where the electric vehicles industry is headed.
