Automation and autonomous vehicles drive investments in induction heating and wireless transfer of energy for charging and power supply. Induction heating makes a difference in smart factories by providing clean, efficient, instant and predictable heat. With smart charging and contactless power supply, the absence of cables enables route and work planning of free-ranging vehicles such as AGVs and mobile robots. In smart cities, the flexibility of cordless charging and powering creates freedom of planning for non-cluttered environments and intelligent transportation systems. Inductive solutions offer the robustness required for industrial processes, continuous operations and reliable transports at a low total cost of ownership.
