The Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) has launched the Infrastructure Applications Group (IAG), a new WPC workgroup dedicated to driving adoption of Qi in hotels, restaurants, sporting venues, and other everyday locations. The IAG's charter members include ChargeSpot, ConvenientPower, Devant, HTC, IKEA, Leggett & Platt, Nokia, TDK, Texas Instruments, and Verizon Wireless. Qi is backed by more than 200 leading companies of the WPC, and continues to grow as the global leader in wireless charging.
"Establishments clearly want to offer their customers future-proof wireless charging compatible with existing and future devices and we're listening," said John Perzow, Vice President of Market Development at WPC. "Imagine being in any hotel, car, airport, restaurant, or sporting event and always having wireless charging within reach? With the launch of the WPC Infrastructure Applications Group, we're working to make that vision of 'Qi everywhere' a reality."
The Qi standard ensures seamless interoperability, regardless of manufacturer, brand or charging technique. That means you can charge whatever Qi device you use at any Qi charging location, in any Qi-compatible car, or with any Qi product.
Qi is already available in an expanding list of automobiles, and the IAG is working to accelerate adoption of the Qi products, and services specific to other permanent locations like hotels, restaurants, transportation hubs, and sporting venues.
