Awesome! But now you know the joy of being on the bleeding edge.

The only solution/application I've seen is the rear of box vans. They're a special case aerodynamically, with enough fineness ratio to have unseparated flow at the rear. They are used to reduce the cross-section of the wake.

Generally they encourage reattachment. What is your test vehicle? For the example shown, I'd attack the vortexes coming off the A-pillar and maybe address the front wheels on the lower doors.

Do you have an algorithm for sizing the power supply, generator and actuator area?
