Electrification Of Motor Highways In The Future? My Modest Proposal.

Cars and trucks someday might have trolley poles to pick up electric current going down the highway. These poles will operate robotically and automatically to switch overhead power lines to change lanes and exit/enter roadways. A minimum reserve of power will be on board as a smaller battery so operation of the car's power will be seamless while changing routes. Another possible way is to have slots in metal rails enbedded flush in the asphalt like steetcar tracks with robotic under-body electrical pickup contacts riding in them to draw current out of them to the vehicle.

Have the traveling automobile or truck pick up current like electric trains and trolley buses somehow.

Designing safe and efficient battery technology for EV's seems very troublesome.
