IDC Technology Spotlight paper
“The Future of Wireless Power and AirFuel Next-Generation Technologies”
While the market for wireless charging solutions for smartphones is currently the broadest implementation, IDC believes that wireless charging is poised to become the lifeblood of a revolutionary shift that will enable robots, electric vehicles, drones, and many other technologies to develop and reach their maximum potential. But not all wireless power technologies are the same – and some are more suitable than others, especially when applied to real-world situations.
This IDC Technology Spotlight examines the current wireless power market including its complexities and challenges, the evolution of technology (from inductive to next-gen resonant and RF solutions), the role of standards in creating a stable market, and the role of the AirFuel Alliance in developing advanced charging solutions based upon magnetic resonance and radio frequency (RF) technologies.
