Batteryless IoT

Reference number
Coordinator Uppsala universitet - Institutionen för informationsteknologi
Funding from Vinnova SEK 500 000
Project duration May 2015 - January 2016
Status Completed
Venture Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation

Purpose and goal

The main goal of this project was to create a strong consortium that makes the Internet of Things practical by replacing batteries through the use of energy harvesting and backscatter. We have now formed a consortium with SMEs, large industrial partners and researchers as well as a strong reference group. We have selected smart houses / buildings as the focus area for the project´s next phase since we have seen a lot of industrial interest and potential in that domains.

Results and expected effects

The result of this project is a strong consortium in batteryless Internet of Things with a focus domain of smart housing and smart buildings. We have created a good understanding of the needs of the industrial partners and there are quite some synergies between the partners that allow for a smooth and successful second phase of the project.

Approach and implementation

We have followed the approach outlined in the proposal with external workshops (at SUST as a breakfast meeting and at SICS) followed by meetings with interested industrial partners. This strategy has worked very well and together with out existing partners we were able to put together a strong project consortium.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
