OUR MISSION

Bringing safe, efficient wireless power transfer to everyone

Bumblebee was founded in 2021 off-the-back of £5m of research funding into Imperial’s world-leading Wireless Power Lab.

Until now, inductive charging has promised much but has suffered from limited uptake, with existing solutions being either large and heavy or little more than contactless charging. Our vision is to deliver a wireless charging technology people actually want to use — a solution that is easy to integrate into any product, offering much greater freedom of position when charging, provides whatever power is required, and that is interoperable across multiple vehicle types with the ability to simultaneously charge many devices from a single pad.

Having already demonstrated that our patented approach can deliver these USPs, our next challenge is to work with customers and stake-holders to roll out the technology in multiple markets.

What we do

Delivering key innovations in wireless power

We’re working with customers to eliminate battery-swapping in electric micro-mobility hire schemes, provide convenient home charging for e-bikes and e-scooters, and to enable autonomy in industrial and delivery operations.

Autonomous Systems

Bumblebee's lightweight, high tolerance-to-misalignment wireless charging solution is a key enabler for autonomy of aerial drones, factory robotics, or home delivery systems.

e-Mobility

Bumblebee's USPs enable a single interoperable ground-based charging pad for kick-scooters, ride-on scooters, and e-bikes.

Electric Cars

Bumblebee is developing high-power solutions to enable wireless electric car charging without the need for expensive precision parking aids.
