Magment partners with EDAG to develop wireless concrete chargers

Munich-based startup Magment has partnered with EDAG, a development partner for automotive products and production, to develop wireless charging solutions for Cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems (C-ITS).

Magment is focused on developing and manufacturing wireless chargers using magnetized concrete. In the partnership, EDAG will focus on developing wireless charging products that use Magment’s magnetic materials for Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) and Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) applications within Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), which the EU has sought to deploy in the last few years in an effort to increase road safety and decrease congestion.

The solutions will use Magment’s transmitter ground assembly products, such as the MAGPAD wireless concrete charger.

Magment eventually hopes to widen its portfolio and produce fully integrated wireless charging infrastructure for a variety of vehicles, including forklifts, scooters, cars, and buses, and to deploy these solutions in Germany, Finland, the UK and China.

EDAG Director Javier Rodrίguez said, “This stimulating collaboration with Magment combines the latest magnetizable concrete technology and world-class engineering to provide holistic wireless charging solutions for global mobility needs.”
