Technology and World Change Individual Presentation Technology and World Change Individual Presentation Presentation Transcript

  • Even Electricity is going Wireless! By Kelvin Koh Tong Weng
  • Presentation Flow:
    • Part 1: Brief History and Current Applications
    • Part 2: Analysis of Benefits & Value Proposition
    • Part 3: How to Capture Value from Wireless Electricity Technologies
  • Part 1: Brief History and Current Applications
  • A Brief History… All great Inventions begin with “What If…?”
  • A Brief History… “ What If we can wirelessly transfer electricity ?” Nikola Tesla
  • A Brief History… Tesla Coil Wardenclyffe Tower
  • About 100 years later… Wireless Electricity Technology was developed further. Product Innovation occurred.
  • 3 Forms of Wireless Electricity Technology
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • How does Work? Inductive Coupling
  • How “Inductive Coupling” Works
  • Product Examples… Electric Toothbrushes Charging Platforms
  • How does Work? Radio Frequency
  • How “Radio Frequency” Works Transmitter Receivers
  • Product Example… Hotel Room Sensors
  • How does Work? Magnetic Resonance Coupling
  • How “Magnetic Resonance Coupling” Works
  • Product Examples… Osram Luminaire Concept Lights
  • Product Examples… “ Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) has entered into a technological collaboration agreement with Massachusetts, United States based WiTricity Corporation * concerning the practical application of automotive wireless charging systems and the promotion of their widespread use. TMC plans to participate in a WiTricity capital increase.” Source: Toyota Motor Corporation, April 27 2011, TMC and Witricity Form Battery –charging Alliance, retrieved August 20 2011 from http://www2.toyota.co.jp/en/news/11/04/0427_2. html
  • Part 2: Analysis of Benefits & Value Proposition
  • Feature Benefit Go Cordless Efficiency
  • Feature Benefit Universal (All-in-One)
  • Feature Benefit Greener World Reduce use of disposable batteries
  • Customer Value Proposition
    • “ To create and deliver electricity wirelessly to power devices/products in the most convenient, reliable and universally applicable manner”
  • Part 3: How to Capture Value from Wireless Electricity Technologies
  • Consumer Products Industrial Transportation
  • Value Capture Joint Ventures and Licensing
  • Value Capture Manufacture and Sell Products Customers
    • Imagine…
  • The End
  • Q&A Session
  • Are these technologies safe?
    • Yes. Fields transmitted fall well between regulatory guidelines. There are regulatory bodies like the “Wireless Power Consortium” to monitor and set international standards.
  • Another “safe” example…
    • WiTricity ’ s technology is a non-radiative mode of energy transfer, relying instead on the magnetic near field. Magnetic fields interact very weakly with biological organisms—people and animals—and are scientifically regarded to be safe. 
  • Costs involved are too high?
    • The reason why some companies choose the licensing model to capture value is precisely to solve the problem of high implementation costs. Leveraging on existing companies that can manufacture and supply the products is a smart move.
  • How reliable is this Wireless Electricity?
    • As with many wireless technologies, there will be issues regarding efficiency and reliability. I agree that there limits to the wireless system. E.g. PowerCaster Transmitter to Receiver -> 40-50 ft at about 70% efficiency
