Montreal – June 4, 2018 – Morris Kesler, Ph.D., the chief technology officer of WiTricity, the industry pioneer in wireless power transfer over distance, will keynote a session titled “Wireless Charging of Electric Vehicles” at the IEEE Wireless Power Transfer Conference (WPTC) on the morning of June 7.
IEEE WPTC is a venue to explore the state-of-the-art advancement in wireless power theory, technologies and applications across the electromagnetic spectrum. This year’s event celebrates technical excellences and achievements of related materials, techniques, devices, circuits, antennas and systems in the field.
WiTricity’s patented magnetic resonance technology is a critical piece of the wireless power ecosystem with the ability to charge devices at a distance, through materials and as efficiently as plugging in. Wireless charging for EV applications has been in development for several years, offering an efficient and flexible means of charging EVs from multiple classes and at a range of power levels from a common ground source. Kesler’s keynote will explore the evolution and future of wireless EV charging, including the standardization activities that are well underway to ensure compatibility between systems across vehicle makers and locations.
Kesler’s keynote session will take place on Thursday, June 7 from 8:30-9:15 a.m. ET in room M-1010 in the Lassonde building (more details here).
