Denso develops world's first integrated, in-vehicle wireless cell phone charger

TOKYO —

Denso has developed the world’s first integrated, in-vehicle wireless cell phone charger, in collaboration with Philips & Lite-On Digital Solutions (PLDS). The Qi-compatible wireless cell phone charger will make its world debut in North America on the 2013 Toyota Avalon Limited as part of the available technology package. The wireless cell phone charger is manufactured at the company’s Denso Wireless Systems America facility, located in Vista, Calif.

“As smartphones become more widely-used in vehicle connectivity, this new product provides a convenient charging solution that is needless of cords and connections,” said Hiroyuki Wakabayashi, executive director responsible for Denso’s Information & Safety Systems Business Group.

The charger is designed to meet the global Qi standard, which was established to ensure compatibility between Qi-compatible phones and other electronics and chargers. Many future smartphones that will launch in 2013 and beyond will integrate a Qi-compatible chip to allow wireless charging without an added sleeve, which is currently necessary for phones that are not Qi compatible.

Denso has developed and provided various technologies and applications that coordinate with smartphones such as the “ARPEGGiO,” an information system that uses the onboard navigation screen to display and operate smartphone applications, and “NaviBridge,” an application to operate maps on car navigation systems or set the destination remotely from smartphones.
