Qualcomm Technologies is collaborating with Daimler on its Wireless Power Transfer 2.0 high-performance program for electric vehicles. The Qualcomm Halo WEVC technology provides high performance and high power in a small vehicle package that could allow Daimler customers to charge their electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid EVs without ever having to plug them in. In addition, Qualcomm WiPower technology enables consumer electronics to charge wirelessly in-vehicle.

Qualcomm is involved in helping the automotive industry create a new landscape for communication, convenience, energy efficiency, infotainment and safety through its Snapdragon Automotive Solutions. Mercedes-Benz customers have come to expect vehicles equipped with numerous intelligent systems and sensors that enhance safety, convenience and comfort. Together, the companies intend to combine automotive expertise to advance the connected car industry by delivering intelligently connected vehicles of the future that drive emission free.

"Our work with Daimler AG is a natural extension of the sponsorship we have with the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One team as our work in motorsports cultivates the innovation and advancements seen in the auto space," said Derek Aberle, president of Qualcomm Incorporated. "The automobile has become a mobile platform and an extension of always-on connectivity, and as such, we’re utilizing our expertise as the leader in mobile technology to deliver in-car experiences comparable to the ease and convenience of smartphones."
