Hmm... wireless charging sounds pretty cool. But that is a lot more energy in the air than that of radio, Satellite, or cell phone signals, isn't it? I am more interested in see the environmental and healthy study results of the impact of the wireless charging signal on human body. Cancers?

I think wireless charging for phones will take off...convenience trumps energy waste in this case (and waste is small here)...Kris

Conductive tracks on the road? Interesting idea...but wait, we already have electric trains, electric street cars in the city and trolley buses with conductive tracks in the air! Kris

Reminescent of the Scaletrix race car game where toy cars were powered through copper brushes that sat in a metal track. The plug-together race-track usually had two such tracks and shaped in a figure of 8 with single bridge to make the distance to travel the same for both cars.

and this conductive guide way could be con contact less using the same principle as the scheme above proposes.

Instead of wireless charging using the charging pads, if this technology can be extended to have conductive guide way on the road itself , using which one can directly drive the EV ( no need to charge) then that I could call a pulling factor to go for EVs. The on board batteries will be used only on the road patches where there is no such conductive guide way.

There is an argument that if it is less efficient in energy transmission that conducted charging it would be irresponsible to deploy it. You would be trading convenience today for global warming tomorrow.

Qualcomm is also working on wireless charging of mobile phones and other consumer devices

I am sure this technology will find some applications Joshua Smith gave an excellent plenary on this topic at emerging technologies meeting in Vancouver last week, www.cmoset.com But I am skeptical in applications of battery charging

This could be a thing of future. As long as it doesn't cost much and provides the same charging effieciency I'm in for it.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
