Interesting move from ST Micro as it teams up with WiTricity to put wireless charging into a wider range of applications, embedded it into IoT and industrial devices.
WiTricity is part of the AirFuel Alliance, which competes with the Wireless Power Consortium's Qi specification. Using magnetic resonance has advantages in industrial applications as it can be used with metal bodies systems which is a challenge for inductive charging.
