Qualcomm Acquires Wireless Electric Vehicle Charging Tech From HaloIPT

Qualcomm has acquired substantially all of the technology and other assets of HaloIPT, a provider of wireless charging technology for electric road vehicles.

The move is meant to strengthen Qualcomm’s technology and patent portfolio.

As part of the deal, all members of the HaloIPT staff have joined Qualcomm’s European Innovation Development group (which is based in the UK).

In addition to the HaloIPT transaction, Qualcomm and Auckland UniServices, the commercialization company of the University of Auckland, have committed to a ‘long-term research and development arrangement’ to promote innovation in the field of wireless charging for electric road vehicles.
