Qualcomm recently announced the first trial for its Wireless Electric Vehicle Charging (WEVC) technology in the United Kingdom, in collaboration with the UK Government, as well as the Mayor of London's office and Transport for London. The trial will use Qualcomm wireless inductive power transfer technology that enables high-efficiency power transfer across a large air gap. It's very easy to use — the driver simply parks the vehicle in the usual way and the system automatically aligns for power transfer, making parking easier and charging hassle free. A press statement by the company said the pre-commercial trial is expected to start in early 2012 and will involve as many as 50 electric vehicles.
