Wireless charging technology

U.S. auto supplier Delphi Automotive is partnering WiTricity Corp to develop a wireless charging technology for electric vehicles.

Delphi is working on a system that would simply require the drivers to park their electric car over a wireless energy source installed in the floor of a home garage, or fitted under the pavement of a parking spot. The vehicle’s batteries would be charged in the position. The system would make use of WiTricity's patented wireless energy transfer technology which features high resonance magnetic coupling and could work at longer distances than a traditional power cord.

WiTRicity claims that its system can transfer over 3,300 watts, enough to completely charge an electric vehicle in the same amount of time as a residential plug-in charger. "Charging an electric car should be as easy as parking it in your garage or parking spot," said Eric Giler, CEO of WiTricity, in the press release.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

I think it is just cheaper using a house plug. carbon print would be much less too.

it make more sense to implement this if you can extend this technology to charging on the go. Nowadays our atmosphere is virtually peppered with many sorts of radiation. Might be good to make use of that
