Energy Harvesting for Low-Power IoT Devices

Posted on

The demand for IoT devices that does not require battery replacement or plug-in recharging is increasing; battery replacement or plug-in recharging simply costs time and money. The solution ‘Energy Harvesting’ is becoming more popular – this is the recharging of IoT devices wirelessly by its surrounding ambient sources.

The main benefits of Energy Harvesting include:

  • Reducing battery replacement cost
  • Reducing the storage element size
  • Allowing additional features

Energy Harvesting is setting new standards for the industry as the number of companies shifting their devices to this breakthrough technology is growing. E-peas’ Ambient Energy Managers (AEM family) are suitable for Industrial, Smart Argriculture, e-Health, Security, Society and Wearables, Home Automation, Retail, and Mobility Applications.

e-peas has teamed up with SODAQ for a webinar to show potential customers how Photovoltaic Energy Harvesting can be implemented in Animal Tracking Tag Cases in Smart Agriculture.

What will the webinar cover?

  • Principle of evaluating the energy balance before design implementation
  • SODAQ’s approach to achieving low-power consumption on IoT edge devices and how these concepts came into play in developing the “mOOvement” Cattle Tracker. SODAQ’s low-power philosophy synergized with the e-peas AEM10941 lead to a fully autonomous cattle tracking solution that delivers real-time location data to free-range cattle farmers.

The webinar was held on Thursday 26th November 2020 at 10:00 GMT/11:00 CET.
