He has authored or co-authored six books, more than 180 publications on automotive electrical and electronic systems, and holds 54 U.S. patents. Dr. Miller is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a Fellow of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), and the recipient of the Henry Ford Technology Award and IEEE’s Kliman Innovator Award. He is a registered professional engineer in Michigan and Texas. Along with his work with Momentum Dynamics, Dr. Miller will continue as a consultant to a leading energy storage company.

“I have had the good fortune to be involved with a rapidly developing technology such as wireless charging, and have evaluated many different systems within this space. I believe wireless charging is the future, and I also believe Momentum’s technology is the most cost-effective and safest,” said Miller.

Miller joins an advisory board that is chaired by former General Motors executive Tony Posawatz, who was the General Manager of the successful Chevrolet Volt program as well as the former CEO at Fisker Automotive. Daga continued: “Momentum’s Advisory Board has extraordinary intellectual bandwidth, including accomplished leaders with expertise that spans multiple disciplines – the automotive industry, high power inductive power, advanced battery technology, bioelectricity, industrial productivity, and government policy. It’s amazing to watch what happens when they interact.”
