Infrastructure deployment of wireless power plays a critical role in accelerating adoption. Building a smart, standardized, and manageable, global charging network creates value for consumers and supported venues.
Providing wireless charging in the places consumers frequent most can help reduce battery anxiety. Venues can differentiate themselves from competitors by using managed wireless power network services to analyze usage patterns and monitor the health of each charging spot. A cloud based wireless power network servicing public enterprises will accelerate wireless power into mainstream adoption.
AirFuel Alliance has released the first set of specifications that include:
- Mechanisms for wireless charging systems to report health and receive commands from the central server
- Interface for mobile applications to get information on available wireless power public installations
- Interface for device manufacturers to expose the wireless power chip unique identifier to the OS level
- Registration process to allow devices to be serviced on the network
