Autos to be Powered BY RADIO
AUTOMOBILES which will be driven by electric motors receiving their power through centrally located transmitting stations are predicted for the future by G. M. Williams, president of the Marmon Motor Car Company, who predicts that the present type of gasoline driven auto will be obsolete before the twentieth century is over. Automobile engineers are said to be already designing radio-operated cars.
Large generating stations similar to those which are used at present in generating electricity for commercial purposes will be used, the power being transmitted from the central station to the car itself on its specially assigned wave length.
To start his car, the auto owner will simply turn a switch on his dashboard which will automatically tune him in on his individual power wave.
