CES 2017: What do you get when you cross a BMS with wireless?
At the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, I came across an interesting concept — what if you combined a battery management system (BMS) with wireless technology? To be honest, the concept hadn’t crossed my mind before, but now thinking about it a bit, it gave me an “aha!” moment. It struck me because I was in the Linear Technology booth where the company was displaying such technology, hence, I took a few minutes to hear them out. Assuming you might have the same questions, I asked one of the technology’s inventors, Daniel Quinger, Founder and CEO of Lion Smart Technology, a partner of Linear Technology, to explain it to me (and everyone else).
