It didn't go very far because there wasn't a standard. Now there is.
Well then one might create a standard for a snake. Does it change anything?
Elon said it will come because it has to and he knows it. I know it. There is no other way.
Or you don't agree? Is there any OTHER way besides weird thing that plugs in itself?
Sure, standard wireless charging that requires nothing more than driving over it, has no moving parts and thus requires essentially no maintenance unlike the snake, and which AVs can use easily. The downside is lack of portability and higher installation costs, but those are almost certainly outweighed by lower parts and O&M costs and greater convenience, and a lack of exposure to accidents and damage.
