Lumen Group Receives Wireless EV Charging Certification
May 26, 2020—The Lumen Group, an integrator of automotive systems, has become the first group to gain a wireless electric vehicle charging certification, according to a press release.
To charge the electric vehicle using wireless power transfer, the driver of the electric car simply needs to park in the proper location in close proximity to the wireless system without any contact to equipment.
Wireless electric vehicle technology could in the future be used for opportunistic charging that would allow a vehicle to charge whenever it is stopped, potentially at stop lights, drive-throughs, toll booths or traveling the same route.
The certification comes from UL, a leading global safety science company.
Lumen Group worked with UL on the safety and performance of the wireless charging equipment including the power source, the ground pad assembly and the attached vehicle assembly.
