Look Ma, No Hands! Autonomous park-and-charge is real

More than one automobile company has created animated videos demonstrating how cool it would be to autonomously park and charge – here is Hyundai’s vision built on WiTricity’s magnetic resonance wireless charging.

Today, there’s no need for animation. As seen in this video, FAW recently showed its HongQi E-HS9 parking and charging autonomously. No driver. No charging plugs. No human involvement. It even backs in, which is kind of cooler!

This is true autonomy. And none of this would be possible without our licensee VIE, which helped make FAW wireless charging a reality.

More and more cars are touting their self-driving features. But none of them are truly autonomous. No matter where they are, in all kinds of weather, someone HAS to charge the vehicle. Put the plug in, take the plug out. FAW’s HongQi E-HS9 breaks that old paradigm. What vehicle will be next?
