SALT LAKE CITY -- New buses at the University of Utah are packing a high-tech improvement that allows the electrical vehicles to gain a charge through plates embedded in the road, which allows for smaller, lighter batteries and greater vehicle range.

The project is the work of Utah start-up WAVE. FOX 13 News' Dave Nemeth has the story behind the unique buses in the video above. For more information about the technology and WAVE, click here.
