Success of wireless power transmission: Aiming at application to robots and AGV

January 27, 2020

Furukawa Electric announced on January 27, 2020 that it successfully transmited 4.7 kW of power at 13.56 MHz wirelessly over a distance of 95 mm for the first time in the world. This achievement was made using the electric resonance coupling system being developed by the Automotive Products & Electronics Laboratories. By taking advantage of its lightweight nature and the fact that electric resonance couplers do not heat foreign metals, it aims to apply wireless power supply to the next generation of electric personal mobility vehicles, robots, and unmanned vehicles.
