NGK in Japan is using European solar technology from Exeger for an ultra-thin a maintenance-free indoor/outdoor position tracker.

Working with Exeger in Sweden, Tachibana Electronic Solutions and low power wide area networking specialist Semtech, the tracker is just 6mm thick and measures  104 x 72mm.

The tracker has a power supply system that uses NGK’s ultra-thin EnerCera lithium-ion rechargeable battery and Exeger’s Powerfoyle solar cell that efficiently generates electricity both indoors and outdoors. It operates an ultra-thin board based on the LoRa Evaluation Board from Tachibana using Semtech’s LR1110 transceiver.

The tracker is maintenance-free and can be used both indoors and outdoors without battery replacement or charging to provide  highly accurate location information, the tracker enables record temperature, humidity and shock, and smooth data analysis by transmitting collected data to the Cloud via LoRa.

The 6mm thickness allows the tracker to be used in wearable devices and logistics trackers as an independent IoT device equipped with a series of functions from location information acquisition to data transmission, and it will contribute to improved operational efficiency and labor savings by visualizing the movement of people and goods.

In the future, through experimentation and evaluation, the four companies plan to examine a solution business that uses location information, such as systems to protect children and the elderly, manage the activities of office personnel, and analyzing the movement lines of people in stores, factories, and other specific locations.;
