re: Qualcomm acquires wireless EV charging firm

Considering that most wireless devices need to be powered, it makes sense to invest in an emerging technology that provides wireless power. I could see many applications: cellphone/tablet/car charging on major highways (for a fee of course). Perhaps, in the conference rooms at companies and universities/colleges there would be power available for those in attendance. Some interesting possibilities to think about..

Well, Qualcomm isn't the only high -tech firm diversifying to energy sector. I think, its wireless portfolio will boost HaloIPT.

Moving towards energy industry seems very ambitious. A very long term plan is necessary so I have excited to see the commitment from Qualcomm. This company is moving so fast! From a small company selling IP, to a chip vendor and now moving towards a whole new system level in another industry. Good luck!

I'll just do some surfing on my Mirasol enabled tablet to see how successful they've been outside their area of core competency... or perhaps see if there is some relevant coverage on Flo TV.

This is a little strange considering that Qualcomm is a communications company and not a power company. What will qualcomm be up to now?


Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
