Topic:

Safe Advanced Mobile Power

This talk will discuss the Safe Advanced Mobile Power initiative and how it will lead to more sustainable power sources and mobile consumer electronic products, while meeting important requirements for safety, sustainability, manufacturability and cost. The objective of this initiative is to promote the development of a technology to supply energy needs for a week’ worth of "normal" mobile device use without recharging from a fixed power source. Slower technological development in mobile power technology is limiting the application of many new and potentially revolutionary applications.   Mobile device power is in need of its own version of something like “Moore’s Law.”We are currently at the dawn of the Internet of Things (IoT) and advances in novel battery technologies will accelerate the IoT by ushering in a plethora of new applications. Features that utilize ‘always ON,’ enabled by higher energy mobile power sources, will revolutionize the IoT’s ability to interact with its surroundings and provide a virtual extension of human knowledge and influence in ways we do not yet fully appreciate. Likewise the availability of more mobile device power would enable the operation of additional hardware such as multiple radios in simultaneous use and wide-spread use of technologies such as micro-projectors or continuous recording in common mobile devices.This presentation will survey mobile power alternatives available today, what is needed to meet this objective, including safety, sustainability and manufacturability; and activities underway to bring this initiative into existence.
