1. A vehicle induction power assembly for transferring electrical power inductively to an electrical device comprising:
an inductive power transfer system configured to provide the electrical power to the electrical device, and
a communications security system configured to establish a secure communications channel between said inductive power transfer system and the electrical device,
wherein upon activating said inductive power transfer system, said communications security system initiates a handshaking procedure between said inductive power transfer system and the electrical device, whereupon if said handshaking procedure is successful, said communications security system instructs said inductive power transfer system to commence providing the electrical power to the electrical device, wherein the vehicle induction power assembly further comprises a transponder coupled to a vehicle communications notification device and a vehicle service provider for facilitating payment of vehicle usage fees, said vehicle service provider being selected from the group consisting of a parking lot fee provider, a vehicle road toll provider, and any combination thereof.
