Looks like a great science experiment and engineering challenge but I can't see the practicality of it. 90% efficient is spectacular for inductive charging but far below what can be achieved with plug in. With the costs of electricity involved here 8-9% efficency is large. If you've got to have your car parked for two hours or more then the effort of plugging it in is very minor.
Is the vision that we would install inductive coils in our garages?
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
