Qualcomm's drive to license wireless car charging technology
Researchers have long explored the science of transmitting electricity wirelessly, but big technical hurdles exist to make that an efficient way to charge laptops or ferry power for thousands of miles. The emergence of electric cars has boosted interest in wireless charging, and a company known for making chips for mobile phones and telecom equipment wants to be an early player in the field. Qualcomm announced a project in London to demonstrate a technology it only bought recently. The California company purchased the intellectual property of HaloIPT for an undisclosed sum and folded the startup's employees into its European research and development crew, which is based in the United Kingdom.
