Tittle:
Multi-purpose miniaturized wireless device fully customizable for Internet of Things systems
Summary:
An Italian startup has developed a multi-purpose miniaturized (~25 mm2) device that operates completely wireless. Both communication and charging are wireless. This product can be used in a wide range of applications, especially in the Internet of Things systems, such as environmental data collection, especially in extreme climates or out-of-reach places.
The startup is willing to negotiate licence agreements to commercialize the product or research cooperations to further develop it.
Description:
The company is a young and agile startup that aims to be disruptive in the Internet of Things market. Mixing creativity, design and advanced engineering, the company is developing innovative hardware and software solutions, meant to radically change the routines of established market leaders. The company is also committed to develop genuine multi-purpose products to improve people quality of life, inventing new ways of interaction with their environment. All the projects carried on are business and consumer oriented, and aim to make good technology available for everybody.
The product developed is a micro-board consisting of:
- wireless unit for communication, that allows the system to connect to other devices with no need of hard wiring, allowing for it to function in every environment;
- wireless operating processing unit, that can be fully customized for the needed purpose, which includes but it is not limited to data collection and processing;
- wireless charging device, that makes possible for it to work in places where traditional energy sources by wiring are not available
The embedded micro board, that has high miniaturization and a very small size, works without connectors, hence it does not need hard wiring, neither for power supply nor for communications with other devices. It can be equipped with sensor or actuators, in relation to the scope or application.
Its features allow it to work in a wide range of devices and fields, without charging cables or battery replacement, especially where it is not possible to provide connectors, wire or cable, like wearable, waterproof, encapsulated, hermetically sealed, inaccessible, untouchable systems and moving objects.
In fact, it´s also possible to use the product in movement, and it will keep charging. When the device runs low on battery, the internal system will automatically activate the charger.
For these reasons the product can be used in a wide range of applications, especially in the Internet of Things market. Everything ranging from sensors detecting, collecting and processing environmental data to a wide array of wireless systems to connect different devices is a perfect fit for the product.
The startup is looking both for commercial and scientific partnerships.
Commercial partnerships are to be intended as capital ventures interested in funding the commercialization of the product, as well as companies operating in the Internet of Things and electronics/communication market willing to start the production of the product under licence agreements.
Scientific partnerships are to be intended as researchers, universities and every subject and institution interested in cooperating with the startup to further develop the product, by improving existing features, adding new one ad researching new uses and applications.
In both cases, the startup is also open to evaluate a joint venture.
Advantages and Innovations:
Some of the innovative aspects and advantages are as follows:
- the product is an ideal fit for companies operating in the environment measurement (pollution and magnetic fields), agriculture biosensors, and Internet of Things systems;
- high resistant: the device can be easily embedded in waterproof and hard cases, which makes it suitable to function in extreme climates and extreme conditions;
- customizable processing: the processor with internal flash memory and accessible I/O interface allows for full customization;
- wireless communication: the BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy 4 ) system allows the product to be connected with any other wireless device with no need of hard wiring;
- Wireless charging: by default, the product comes with Qi standard, but other standards are applicable depending on the specific requirements;
- low energy consumption: the long capacity of internal battery allows the product to work for several years, for the most cases of processing;
- very small size: the product is ~25 mm2, and the custom design of PCBs with advanced miniaturization makes it available for use in every place;
