December 5, 2019 Hopkinton, MA
Tri-Star Design, Inc., an electronic product development company, announced today that in conjunction with their client Witricity Corporation, they have successfully designed and developed an advanced wireless charging system prototype for electric vehicles (EVs). The Tri-Star Design team provided targeted design resources to augment the WiTricity development of the WiTricity’s DRIVE 11 park-and-charge system, designed for maximum efficiency and interoperability across vehicle platforms. WiTricity’s DRIVE 11 wireless charging system allows a driver to simply pull into his or her parking spot and automatically receive charging power from a source on the ground—without the need for a physical connection of the vehicle to the charger. The system design works across all EV platforms and can be deployed as a “floor pad” in a consumer’s garage, as well as installed in the pavement to provide wireless charging in public and commercial parking lots.
