Rich, 

if it's sensors, not motors, I guess it help right?

I know that you can transmit a possible power via FM transmission, but until today we can not send enough power via air without having "big" gain antennas and "big" transmission stations that is the reason why today it is not possible. In addition, have in mind that today Smartphone have double maybe four times more power needs that it had a normal mobile phone in 2005.

@Nemos: Wireless charges is currently in its infancy and being tested on a small scale. I think once becomes mature and stable, we shall see widespread adoption of it. That's when it will also start to be used within smart cars. Here's a blog explaining how the technology works.

@Hospice: Yes indeed at least for a start its good. Good that they started it because even though the technology was there nobody used it.

@Hospice: I'm not sure how this works but I think it's a bit complicated. Anyway how does the greener effect work as an output of a vehicle ?

@Rich: Free wifi is good but that expose your data into public. Security threats are really high and it can lead to many data breeching. Who knows these may be the opening that the hackers are waiting for.

That is indeed a way to make cars more greener, but could the technology have any health side effect on car users? I guess the concentration of electro-magnetic wave will likely increase inside the car.

@nemo: The technology itself may not be that new, but the optimization of energy consumption is a good improvement. Also one of the advantage of the technology is to help reduce the use of cables in cars.
