unplugged - Inductive charging

Electric mobility is one of the major future topics in automotive. It will change and define the types of mobility and vehicles of the future.

Besides cables, inductive charging will gain significant relevance. It can take place both during standstill as well as while driving. Especially short term charging cycles are comfortably feasible and can help to improve the overall acceptance.

We actively promote the development and integration of such systems as well as their standardization. In publicly funded projects such as the EU-project “unplugged” we already defined relevant requirements and challenges for inductive charging concerning the infrastructure as well as the vehicle itself.

Research topics are among others

  • usability
  • interoperability
  • integration into new vehicle system architectures
