EDITORIAL – Gaping gap between EV wireless and plug-in charging technologies
For automakers to embrace the technology in larger scale, wireless charging needs to evolve fast to match the efficiency and speed of plug-in charging systems
The future of automotive is electric and autonomous. While almost all automakers have set up a roadmap to fully embrace electric vehicles (EV), many of them are now also channeling a good chunk of their investments towards developing autonomous driving technologies. Although, real-world application of electrically powered autonomous vehicles is still at a nascent stage, such cars will raise the need for quite a few complementary technologies to support their smooth operations. One such technology is wireless charging system, also called inductive charging.
