Wireless Charging Turns Automotive
Fulton Innovation’s eCoupled PowerSpot is the first inductive charging technology that can wirelessly charge high-powered devices.
Fulton demonstrated the new technology by charging an electric Tesla Roadster on their show stand at technology trade show CES 2011.
The Tesla was parked four inches above an induction charging pad placed in the road surface, while a receptive plate is attached underneath the vehicle. Users can monitor and manage their car’s charge using a smartphone app.
