German Car Manufacturers Agreed to Use Qi Wireless Charging Technology

CE4A working group recommended its members to use the Qi standard for inductive electrical power transfer (wireless charging) in current and future vehicle models.
CE4A (Experts from Consumer Electronics for Automotive) is a working group created by German car manufacturers (including BMW Group, Audi AG, Volkswagen AG, Porsche Automobil Holding SE and Daimler AG) promoting an active standardization of interfaces between consumer mobile devices (such as smartphones) and automotive engine control units. CE4A is organized in eight expert groups (EG), which are engaged in different areas of expertise.

CE4A’s EG on standard connectors selects and defines physical and logical connectivity solutions to CE devices that can be commonly used in automobiles produced by CE4A members. Agreeing on standards is essential for the automotive industry because vehicle development times are long, they need reliable solutions, and each individual company has to avoid investing in a technology that turns out to be a dead end.

By choosing the same wireless charging technology they avoid battles over standards that don’t create value for their customers and for their own company.
