Battery-free sensor tags developer Wiliot has announced the launch of a kit that provides companies of all sizes and budgets a fast, intuitive and affordable way to discover and experience ambient IoT technology. The Innovation Kit, says the company, is designed to offer an easy onramp to begin exploring and building ambient IoT solutions that can solve the biggest challenges facing supply chains, retail, CPG, healthcare, agriculture, and more.
The Innovation Kit is now offered alongside the company’s Starter Kit, which is a plug & play experience using an IoT Pixel-ready coffee cup that demonstrates item-level temperature monitoring right out of the box. The Innovation Kit moves one step further into the world of ambient IoT by providing a more hands on experience with the Wiliot Platform, and IoT Pixels that can be attached to items selected by the kit user.
The Innovation Kit includes:
- Wiliot IoT Pixels, tiny, postage-stamp-sized computers that can sense temperature, location, and more, and power themselves by harvesting radio waves. Because they cost just pennies, the Pixels can attach to a world of goods and assets enabling intelligence and producing actionable insights. This greatly benefits people, profit and most importantly, our planet.
- Edge Devices that energize and relay IoT Pixel data.
- Access to Wiliot Cloud Services that enable actionable insights.
- Digital Solution Guides for experiencing how ambient IoT solves business challenges.
The company says its mission is to make every single thing an agent of change, unlocking access to an ambient IoT that adds intelligence and connectivity to reusable packaging, apparel, pharmaceuticals, food, and nearly any other product.
“We’re illuminating what was once in the dark by providing companies with actionable insights – and the status of every product at every moment – and the implications are profound,” says Thadious Fisher, VP of Global Channels at Wiliot. “With real-time sensing and product lifecycle traceability, food is safer and fresher, medicine is more secure, and goods and assets are easily located.”
The Innovation Kit is available now for $150.
