LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Utah State University trustees have approved building a campus test track for electric vehicles powered wirelessly while in motion.
The Herald Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1jA469H ) the USU Board of Trustees approved the deal Friday, and the next stop for the proposal is the Utah state Board of Regents.
The plan calls for Woodbury Corporation of Utah and USU to build a 4,800-square-foot facility and an oval-shaped vehicle test track at the interdisciplinary USU Innovation Campus research center. That's off East Grand Avenue in North Logan.
The test facility would be for vehicles ranging from a passenger car to a full-size bus.
Funding would come from facilities and administrative indirect costs.
Rob Behunin, university vice president for commercialization and advancement, says officials hope to break ground on the track by early fall.
