Energous Wiliot BLE dual band Pixels are in fact postage stamp-sized computer devices that power themselves without batteries by harvesting energy from radio waves. These Energous Wiliot BLE dual band Pixels are manufactured by Identiv and have essentially no limits to life, are embeddable and operate with minimal low-cost infrastructure for harvesting and reading. The dual band Pixels, being battery-free combined with innovative tag production techniques have advantages over conventional RFID tags in size, cost and maintenance.
The Energous Wiliot BLE dual band Pixels can be seen as RFID tags equipped with sophisticated BLE chips with sensing capabilities. Energous Wiliot BLE dual band Pixels are in fact Ambient IoT devices that can, once attached to items, offer companies real-time, item-level visibility into every product within their supply chains, which will have a positive impact on both profits and the planet. The Wiliot Ambient IoT ecosystem that the Pixels operate in helps companies to;
Keep their produce being fresh longer, reducing the amount wasted due to rot and spoil
Make delivery routes more efficient, requiring less fuel and emitting lower greenhouse gas
Transition from daily to real-time stock-checks, resulting in supply chains both with lower carbon footprints and that can respond in real-time to replenish stock.
The tags continuously communicate in real time, do not require employees or consumers to tap or scan in order for them to communicate and can easily be embedded into other products because there are no batteries that need to be changed.
