Graeme Davison is the VP for Business Development & Marketing at Qualcomm and knows all about the state of wireless charging today. The technology is here, even for dynamic charging. The question is where to apply it first.
Qualcomm is at the forefront of inductive charging and by now has licensed more than a dozen Tier 1 suppliers, the latest being Nichicon in Japan. In Europe, Qualcomm together with Renault demonstrated dynamic wireless charging at 20 kW.
As vice president for Business Development & Marketing at Qualcomm Technologies International, Inc. Davison believes that charging while driving may be another ten years away, but that static solutions will become a standard option within 2 – 3 years. When, who and where, he outlines in our interview held at the EVS30 in Stuttgart.
