Wireless Power Charging on the move
Von 7layers GmbH
CE4A uses the Qi wireless power charging technology
For this initiative, the German auto consortium CE4A has chosen the Qi technology as one of the preferred wireless charging standards. Qi technology is being developed and maintained by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC). There is already a large variety of mobile-device models on the market that support the Qi technology standard. With the automotive industry’s support, this trend will make interoperability issues a thing of the past and turn “wireless power charging on the move” into something we will take for granted in the not too distant future. http://www.makezens.com/blog/automotive-industry-embraced-wireless-charging/
However, both wireless power transmitters and receivers have to be tested in accordance with regulatory and industry interest groups requirements.
7layers has been involved in testing wireless charging devices for several years, especially for the mobile phone and Smartphone industry. As a test & certification services provider for leading automotive industry suppliers, 7layers has gained an outstanding level of experience in this sector. Pooling these experiences enables us to offer extremely effective support to the automotive industry for the integration of wireless power charging into their new models.
Benefit from 7layers services when developing wireless power charging transmitters and receivers
In addition to this, the automotive industry is also working on an even more spectacular promise!
The industry is already working on electric and hybrid cars that will be charged via wireless power – in special parking areas or even AS THEY DRIVE on specially equipped roads. You can read more about this at: http://money.cnn.com/2015/08/18/technology/uk-electric-cars-roads/
Even if it takes a while until we can drive along the motorway almost like a perpetuum mobile – 7layers is keeping an eye on this trend and could support the industry when it comes to developing the necessary test set-ups, specifications and test services.
