Qualcomm to speak on WEVC at The Battery Show & Charging Infrastructure Expo

Novi, Mich., November 1, 2012 – As electric vehicle adoption continues to grow, companies are improving charging technologies to suit the needs of drivers. The organizers of The Battery Show announced today that Qualcomm will present a seminar on wireless electric vehicle charging (WEVC) – at The Battery Show & Charging Infrastructure Expo in Novi, Mich., on Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012.


Qualcomm HaloTM WEVC technology uses resonant inductive wireless energy transfer to eliminate the plug-in cord used in most electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). The technology allows charging across a bigger air gap, making it more flexible for different vehicles and charging configurations. Drivers can charge their vehicle battery easily, by simply parking in a space equipped with the technology.

"Having a leader in wireless technology presenting furthers our commitment to offering a conference that addresses real issues in the industry," said Adam Moore, exhibition director.

The seminar will provide industry leaders with a comprehensive overview of the advantages of the WEVC system, design considerations and configuration options.

Qualcomm will provide the opening keynote presentation at the co-located Charging Infrastructure Expo, a conference that brings businesses and government groups together, focusing on operation and installation of charging infrastructure. Qualcomm also has a stand at the show, B210 in the Charging Infrastructure Expo zone. The company also will exhibit, joining global leaders from the battery and charging industries in a 130,000 square foot hall featuring more than 200 companies.
