Video: Lucas di Grassi vs. RC car

Die-hard motorsport fans who learn about Formula E for the first time tend to compare the Formula E racer with a remote control car. Qualcomm, shareholder of the all-electric racing series, develops wireless charging technology and came up with the idea to challenge Audi Sport ABT driver Lucas di Grassi with a wirelessly charged RC car.

The course cars in Formula E, including the BMW i8 safety car, are wirelessly charged by Qualcomm’s technology. Last year was invited to witness a demonstration of the technology (video) and read the how Formula E can accelerate the adoption of wireless charging.
