‘Consumer-ready’ wireless power solution to be demoed at CES

By eeNews Europe

The demo will showcase the entire Cota platform including a compact tabletop transmitter/charger, mobile phone, and IoT receivers. Additionally, Ossia will unveil what it claims to be the first wireless self-charging battery – an AA-size battery that never runs down.

Complementing the hardware will be a full set of web and mobile applications for operating and managing the system locally and remotely. Together the hardware platform and software will demonstrate a number of real-world applications that launches wireless power out of the lab and into the living room.

In support of the Cota platform, Ossia will be accompanied by wireless charging ecosystem partners including KDDI, a major global wireless service provider as well as component, system and software suppliers Si-Ware, XPNDBLS, and OSF Global Services. KDDI has partnered with Ossia to demonstrate a working Connected Home IoT application using both wireless power and data from the Cota platform.

"We are very excited to show CES 2016 attendees and the rest of the world how Cota can free us from power cables in the same way that Wi-Fi freed us from data cables," said Hatem Zeine, founder and CEO of Ossia and creator of Cota technology in a statement. "There have been many claims about wireless power but at CES 2016 Ossia is setting the new standard by demonstrating real wireless power, real applications, and a real partner ecosystem."
