|Qualcomm still hasn't figured it out - Halo for moving cars is a very BAD idea and will lose big heaps of money and end up with no Halo being used because the money should go where it's needed which is at recharge points for STOPPED vehicles. |
You were right Mq but Qualcomm is a slow learner. Looks as though they are determined to add Halo to the very long list of failed new ventures.. I still curse their decision to ditch mirasol/iridigm every time I can't see the screen on my Cyberphone and have to go looking for shade to see the screen. They mucked up MediaFLO and Globalstar and Windblast [Wingcast] and gave away pdQ which should have done what iPhone has done, and Eudora which would have become the gateway to Cyberspace etc etc etc.
Halo is a great idea for fixed points such as supermarkets, parking at houses, parking buildings where the pad can be used 100% of the time. It's a very bad idea for the middle of roads where the pads would be used 0.0000!% of the time initially and if ALL cars used Halo mobile charge, they would still be used only about 5% of the time on super busy roads with a continuous flow of traffic.
As airlines know, running expensive capital items at 5% capacity or even 60% capacity is the road to ruin. Airlines these days have to run more like 90% of capacity and preferably 99% capacity.
What is it with Qualcomm? Are they engineers with no concept of economics and what customers need and will want?
There will be zero need ever for roads with continuous coils.
