Imagine a student driving back to college after a weekend trip at home. The student is driving down a highway traveling at a fast speed when his smartphone begins to "beep" indicating his battery is ready to expire. Still traveling at high speeds and knowing that "mom and dad" want a phone call as soon as he arrives safely, the student reaches for his smartphone charger, plugs the charger into the consumer port and in the process takes his eyes off the road. Is that an ideal situation? Delphi is working on a solution that couples both safety and convenience in one package.
Delphi is currently developing a Wireless Charging System for Consumer Devices that will automatically transfer power to mobile electronic devices, providing a safe, convenient and integrated wireless energy transfer system, enabling a true wireless experience. It will deliver what consumers demand — safe, smart and seamless connectivity. With Delphi's technology, a driver’s focus can be on driving, without compromising communication or connectivity.
This forward-looking system will be a product differentiator for advanced technology vehicles, eliminating chargers, cords and adaptors within the vehicle. It is being developed in cooperation with a wireless energy transfer technology provider. A magnetic field from a source resonator in the vehicle provides power to the devices, enabling in-vehicle, high efficiency, device charging that is safe for humans — without the hassle and clutter of cords or connections.This hands-free charging transfers electric power over short distances without physical contact. The wireless charging system will include:
Using this technology enables an innovation evolution which allows positional freedom for the devices while charging. The system will fully charge a device at a rate comparable to most residential plug-in chargers. Regardless of the direction the standards take in the future, Delphi engineers are prepared to offer an appropriate solution.
Tomorrow's solution: Automatic and convenient charging of mobile electronic devices with the Delphi Wireless Charging System for Consumer Devices — without any charge cords, plugs and adaptors.
The Delphi Wireless Charging System for Consumer Devices is being developed to be used with ground transportation vehicles. Examples of mobile electronic devices that can be automatically charged include mobile handsets, portable navigation devices, smart phones, tablet computers, and more.
The Delphi Wireless Charging System for Consumer Devices is currently under development. Contact Delphi for further information.
Delphi can bridge the gap between the laboratory and the highway by providing electrical/electronic systems integration expertise, a global manufacturing and engineering footprint and components and systems specifically engineered for the vehicles of today and tomorrow. Delphi's expertise in global engineering, validation and manufacturing helps position us to make wireless charging within vehicles a reality.
The Delphi Wireless Charging System for Consumer Devices is an example of taking technology developed for the commercial market and designing it to meet ground transportation requirements, as well as having the manufacturing base to supply it to the global ground transportation market.
