Witricity announced the update of the wireless charging for electric carsFebruary 19, 2019
The technology company specializes in electric car chargers, including Toyota, Honda and BMW models.
So, in 2018, the BMW “530e i Performance” was announced, equipped with a wireless charging function in the factory configuration. In January 2019, the DRIVE 11 wireless charging model was demonstrated at CES Honda and Waitricity.
Late last week, Witricity announced that it had acquired several technology platforms, including a Qualcomm Haro wireless charger. As the company notes, modern technologies allow you to recharge cars smoothly and efficiently using patented magnetic resonance technology. Additionally, it will allow to standardize car chargers regardless of brand. Car owners do not have to pick up the cable with the correct connector. Instead, they can put cars on charge, just parked them in a designated place near the house or in a public parking lot.
In addition, in the future, autonomous cars will be able to independently connect to a wireless charger.
