Electronics Maker interviews VidyaSagar: Impact of Energy Harvesting technology and IoT
This interview is part of the cover story by Electronics Maker on Energy Harvesting technology and its impact on IoT adaptation.
One of the main difficulties with modern electronic devices is how to provide enough energy for the electronics to run over a reasonable amount of time. As Energy Harvesting replaces need of batteries in sensors, using Energy Harvesting sensors could be best option to be integrated by IoT to facilate real-time applications like smart cities, home automation, factory automation, connected car, M2M, environment monitoring and remote patient monitoring.
In this interview, Vidyasagar spoke in detail about how Energy Harvesting based devices will reduce total cost of ownership for IoT adopters and also about various IoT innovations happening at Embitel Technologies, Bangalore.
Vidyasagar also shared details about Embitel’s IoT demo for Smart Home Automation application and about Embitel’s strategic partnership with EnOcean Alliance, a consortium of companies, who are at the forefront of innovations in energy efficient technology solutions for building automation (residential, commercial and industrial buildings)
