FUTUREWATCH: Wireless Electric Car Charging

up with WiTricity of Massachussets, a start-up working with MIT technology, to launch the Power Source Resonator. In this, a pad, the size of a pizza box, containing a high frequency coil and power electronics components is embedded in the floor of a car garage or in a parking lot. The underside of the car is fitted with a matching power capture plate . The power source resonator is connected to the utility 240 volt power source and produces a high frequency ( 20kHz or higher ) electromagnetic field.
