Wireless charging systems for electric vehicles

Wireless charging systems developed by IHI based on this WiTricity technology will enable electric cars with lithium ion batteries to be charged simply by parking.

In response to growing market demand for wireless charging systems for electric vehicles and industrial systems, IHI Corp. of Tokyo, Japan has entered into a long-term collaboration and commercialization agreement with WiTricity Corporation of Watertown, Massachusetts.

As a result of this agreement, IHI is licensed by WiTricity to manufacture and supply wireless charging systems for automotive and industrial applications on a global basis. In addition, the companies will collaborate to accelerate the development of the technology, and to promote international standards for wireless charging systems.

WiTricity Corporation is the inventor of wireless energy transfer technology based on highly coupled magnetic resonance. Such systems have been demonstrated to achieve efficiency of greater than 90%, while transferring more than 3kW over a distance of 20 cm. Wireless charging systems developed by IHI based on this WiTricity technology will enable electric vehicles (EVs) to be charged simply by parking in a spot that has a wireless charging source on or below the floor. EV car makers expect that consumers will be very enthusiastic about being able to charge their vehicles without having to bother with clumsy charging cables.
