La Toyota Avalon embarquera une plateforme de chargement sans fil Qi


Aujourd’hui on sort un peu de l’univers Nokia sans pour autant s’en éloigner. Nous partons en Asie, chez le constructeur Japonais Toyota qui, via un communiqué de presse, nous a annoncé qu’un de ses prochains modèles, la Toyota Avalon donc, embarquera une plateforme de chargement sans fil Qi, et sera ainsi le premier véhicule à l’avoir. Je trouve cela très intéressant de voir que le chargement sans fil commence à prendre de l’ampleur. Après des partenariats avec des chaines commerciales qui proposeront des chargeurs sans fil, aujourd’hui c’est au tour de l’automobile. Petit bémol pour nous fans de Nokia, la photo présente un iPhone 4/4S équipée d’une coque spéciale pour le chargement sans fil. Ce chargeur sera compatible pour les téléphones embarquant la technologie sans fil que sont le HTC 8X, LG Nexus 4, Le Lumia 920, et le 820 si vous l’équipez de la coque compatible.

Ci dessous, le communiqué de presse en question :

“TORRANCE, Calif., Dec. 19, 2012 – The 2013 Toyota Avalon Limited will be the first vehicle available in the world that offers in-console Qi wireless charging for Qi–enabled mobile phones and devices as part of a Technology Package, available for both the gasoline and hybrid version of the new Avalon Limited, which also includes Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Automatic High beams and a Pre-Collision System.

Qi is the global standard for wireless power and charging. With Qi, devices can be charged just by placing them on, or near, any Qi-enabled surface. Any Qi-enabled device works with any Qi charger, regardless of brand or manufacturer.

The Avalon’s wireless charging pad is integrated into the ebin® lid situated in vehicle’s center console. The system can be enabled by a switch beneath the lid, and charging is as simple as placing the phone upon the lid’s high-friction surface.

Supplied by DENSO, the Avalon’s wireless charging system relies on technology developed by ConvenientPower and Philips Lite-on Digital Solution (PLDS), and it will elevate the high technology experience of the new Avalon sedan.

“Pioneering the ability to charge with no wires or connectors by simply putting devices in the car console is an intuitive innovation which reflects Toyota’s continuing commitment to improve the consumer experience,” said Randy Stephens, chief engineer of Toyota Avalon. “We see wireless charging as an important feature that helps enhance the high-technology theme and consumer interface offered by Avalon Limited which is already equipped with three TFT color screens and Intellitouch™ controls.”

Qi wireless charging is now integrated in 34 mobile phone models, including recent launches of the LG Google Nexus 4, Nokia Lumia 920, HTC Windows Phone 8X. Qi-certified products range from smartphones to charging pads, gaming controllers, Blu-ray Disc recorders, smartphone docking speakers, automobile phone chargers, alarm clocks and battery packs, to charging modules that can be installed in tabletops and furniture.

The new dramatically-styled 2013 Avalon arrived in showrooms the beginning of December. This new Toyota flagship sedan features improved dynamics, an athletic exterior design, and a modern yet elegant interior that surrounds occupants with premium materials and a high level of craftsmanship. This latest Avalon is also the first available with Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive that offers a combined EPA-rating of 40 mpg.”
