Electric cars have been becoming more ubiquitous in the United States, especially in Silicon Valley where big companies even offer free charging stations. However, the demand is still much more than the supply, while the workers who own electric cars usually just plug the cars in to charge whenever they arrive the office, and never unplug them until they leave after a whole day. Using wireless charging technology not only allows us to charge many cars at the same time, it also stops charging whenever the battery is full by using a smartphone.
The two companies have just announced their strategic collaboration focused on pioneering innovation in the connected car. And the first phase of this partnership is to develop mobile technologies that enhance in-car experiences and vehicle performance such as 3G/4G connectivity, wireless charging technology for in-vehicle use and implementation of the Qualcomm Halo Wireless Electric Vehicle Charging technology, which could let Daimler customers charge their electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles without ever having to plug them in.
“It’s important that we remain on the cutting edge of technology and continue to deliver unparalleled experiences to our customers. With this in mind, we’re eager to jointly explore possible fields of future cooperation with an internationally leading tech firm like Qualcomm,” said Prof.Dr. Thomas Weber, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG.
Together, the companies intend to combine automotive expertise to advance the connected car industry by delivering intelligent connected vehicles of the future that drive emission-free. “The automobile has become a mobile platform and an extension of always-on connectivity, and as such, we’re utilizing our expertise as the leader in mobile technology to deliver in-car experiences comparable to the ease and convenience os smartphones,” emphasized Derek Aberle, President of Qualcomm Incorporated.
