Wireless charging for the Parrot Jumping Sumo

I've successfully managed to add a basic wireless charging system to my Parrot Jumping Sumo - this opens the door for self-propelled docking and charging - no human input needed. The module itself is from Little Bird Electronics.

The next step is a Pi with a docking dashboard for starting and stopping the charger, reporting on charge state etc. Below you can see it actually charging (indicated by the red LED in the top-right).
