Some German public trasit also employs similar concept at each stop. This is also quite interesting for race cars. But as I understand, the charging technology should be uniform for all car paticipant. If not, it will be difficult to judge the winner - driver, car or charging technology?

@Luis, it is interesting, isn't it? In every day life, plugging your phone or car into the power source doesn't seem like such a big deal and yet, as soon as we are presnted with an alternative "wireless" way, we find it "convenient" and "cool."

Wireless still feels magical to most of us.

if Qualcomm is developing the next way we'll charge our cell phones... why not the next way to charge our cars? 

This charging system for cars is like WiPower ... check it out at:   http://www.qualcomm.com/solutions/wireless-charging/wipower

I guess the cars will include a Wipower charger ... the user experience will be so seamless... just drop the phone in the little space for it in the car and it will get charged, no need to bother about connecting it. Good!

@Dick James, thanks for your comment. It's good to know that a Bentley EV was in a Qualcomm's booth at CES. I guess I missed that one! 

Indeed, it will be nteresting to learn how Qualcomm worms itself into the automotive market.

Qualcomm had a Bentley EV on their booth at CES this year to show off the Halo battery charging system. I was told that the battery is almost as heavy as the V12 engine it replaced. Quite a change to go from low-power RF for phones to high-power RF for a huge battery!

Re: This will be charging the battery or providing power

As with any scheme that involves active roadway systems (autonomous, charging, etc) the massive hurdle will be existing infrastructure and automobiles. retrofitting would be prohivitively expensive, especially once you leave densely packed metropolitan areas.

I would love to go see what Korea is working on in a few years after they've had a chance to both test and improve the system.

@kinnar, as the slide 3 shows, it will be charging the car battery. It is an intriguing idea, and something similar is being tested in Korea. As others commented before, the weather/road conditions are likely to become a big issue, though.

This technology will be charging the battery or it will be providing power to the electric vehicle on the track? If it will provide power to the battery eventually it will be providing power/energy to the car, and this will let the EV to run at the full speed. I think will be providing dual purpose charging the battery simultaneously providing power for the running of car. If en entire city is provided with these kind of tracks with power subscriptions it will be opening entirely a new market.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
