Understanding Wireless Power
by Dave Baarman and Joshua Schwannecke
(December 2009)

Wireless power is transitioning from a technology to an industry, and many questions ranging from what consumers really expect to which technology is the safest and most efficient solution are generating an increasing amount of debate as proprietary products come to market and a wireless power standard is introduced. As wireless power reaches a tipping point, it is important that developers and consumers alike understand the realities of the different technological approaches, especially the safety and efficiency concerns surrounding them, and the current and future states of the technology as it gains momentum.

The Need for a Universal Wireless Power Solution
by Dave Baarman
(September 2009)

Wireless power is not a new technology. Different embodiments have been in development for over 180 years with differing degrees of success. However, until recently, with the invention of the microprocessor, wireless power has not been a viable solution for the challenges facing wired technologies due to inefficiencies and lack of control, causing safety and other issues. Several companies and institutions of higher learning have recently presented solutions to the challenges delaying the introduction of efficient wireless power for mass adoption, but this positive development has brought with it a new set of challenges including the problem of proprietary solutions versus the creation of an interoperable global standard. Consumer research suggests that a universal standard is the preferred solution, so it is now up to the companies interested in developing and manufacturing these solutions to develop a standard that will allow consumers around the world to power their devices across a broad range of brands and power needs under a single, interoperable standard. This solution will, like the Wi-Fi Alliance did for wireless networking, create a new protocol for how people interact with power. Click here to download the complete white paper.
