01 / The Concept
Wireless electricity transmission technology
HaloIPT was a University of Auckland spin-off, established to commercialise world-leading wireless electricity transmission technology.
The company was formed out of breakthrough research undertaken at Auckland University in the development of wireless chargers for electric bikes. The researchers invented a way of charging cars quickly and wirelessly by induction, via a doormat-sized plate in the ground that matches a plate beneath the car. Two years later, HaloIPT was established as a joint venture between Auckland UniServices and an engineering consultancy to commercialise the Halo technology.
