Technology Breakthrough Allows Parked or Moving Cars to Charge Automatically
LONDON, November 2, 2010 - 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.

specialising in public and private transportation. The company was founded in
2010 by the New Zealand-based research and development commercialisation
company UniServices, Trans Tasman Commercialisation Fund (TTCF) and by the
global design consultancy Arup. HaloIPT owns the rights to the intellectual
property behind its IPT Wireless Charging technology: providing stationary
and dynamic in-motion charging for electric vehicles, lowering costs and
improving usability. HaloIPT's CEO, Dr Anthony Thomson, has brought together
a team of world experts in IPT technology to develop the commercial
application of wireless charging.
