Back in October, the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) assigned a task force to standardize the wireless charging of plug-in vehicles. In November, the task force announced its goal of finalizing the SAE J2954 wireless charging guidelines by end of 2011 and enforcing this standard by 2013. The SAE standard will establish performance and safety limits for wireless power transfer in automotive applications. The task force is currently reviewing several wireless charging methods, including inductive and magnetic resonance.

The SAE will conduct tests of wireless charging systems on light-duty passenger vehicles and commercial buses. The J2954 team will evaluate wireless Level 1, 2, and 3 chargers. The SAE's task force consists of automakers, commercial bus producers, wireless charger manufacturers, government agencies, suppliers and universities. In addition, the SAE has established a working relationship with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and VDE (Germany's standardization organization) to ensure that wireless charging systems have at least a fair degree of global compatibility.
