The Bluetooth Special Interest Group and the Alliance for Wireless Power today announced that they have signed a memorandum of understanding that they hope will lead to the creation of a smart wireless charging station. The Bluetooth SIG has issued a UUID to A4WP so it can be added to its baseline system specification. This will use the Bluetooth Smart radio standard to talk to an A4WP charging station and allow A4WP-certified phones to pair with the station and charge. The organizations say this will lead to quicker charge initiation, improved power control features, and let handset makers and developers create new apps that interact with the smart wireless charging station and devices that use it to charge. The organizations did not provide a timeline for producing a finalized spec or the charging stations.
