HaloIPT Showcases World's First Wireless Charging Technology for Electric Vehicles

LONDON, Nov. 3/PRNewswire-AsiaNet / --


    - Technology Breakthrough Allows Parked or Moving Cars to Charge 


    One week after launching its revolutionary wireless charging

system for electric vehicles, technology development company HaloIPT will be

exhibiting at the Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS 25), which this year is

being held in Shenzhen, China; from 5th to 9th November, at booth number


    HaloIPT is the first company in the world to bring to market

IPT (Inductive Power Transfer) technology, which allows cars fitted with an

integrated receiver pad to charge automatically whilst parked over

transmitter pads buried into the ground. HaloIPT's wireless charging pads are

designed to function beneath asphalt, submerged in water or covered in ice

and snow and are very tolerant to parking misalignment. IPT systems can also

be configured to power all road-based vehicles from small city cars to

heavy-goods vehicles and buses.

    In the future, infrastructure providers will be able to embed

IPT technology into the road infrastructure so IPT cars can be charged on the

move. This dynamic in-motion charging represents the most effective way of

solving the range issues faced by electric vehicles today and will

significantly reduce battery size requirements.

    Dr Anthony Thomson, CEO of HaloIPT, says: "Our vision at

HaloIPT is to simplify and improve the electric car experience. We're making

it easier, simpler and safer to own and charge an electric vehicle, while

also ensuring that we keep costs down - our technology will not cost any more

than the plug-in equivalent.

    "We're using IPT technology to finally break down the barriers

to mass-market adoption of electric vehicles."

    HaloIPT aims to build a commercial-scale demonstration of its

technology by 2012.
