Wireless charging for Formula E

Qualcomm, a smartphone components maker, has been signed up by the FIA to use their wireless charging technology in Formula E. This competition will be launching in 2014 and has attracted some of the top-end Electric Car Teams. The wireless technology will only be used for the safety car in the first year, but plans are afoot to expand this to racing vehicles. Perhaps a battery-swop scenario akin to Project Better-Place and now Tesla will be a better option for the competition. Take a look at the BBC article on Qualcomm’s announcement.
