Micro-generation for a world of connected smart devices powered from available ambient light.
We live in an increasingly connected world. Sensors monitor, alert and advise us in the home, in the car and when on the move. The Internet of Things (IoT) is massively increasing the transmission and use of data. But sensors, data processing, wireless systems and actuators all require electrical power.
In today’s smart home, connection to the grid for supply or battery power can be replaced by localised energy harvesting, with Eight 19’s plastic solar panels converting available indoor light into versatile electrical power.
At Eight19, our focus is indoor energy harvesting for consumer electronics, home and office automation – alarms, lighting, HVAC, security for offices, homes, hotels, healthcare and public spaces such as airports and malls.
Eight19 designs customised electronics and software to facilitate trials and development of wireless and IoT applications.
The Eight19 solution is:
- Excellent for low level illumination and artificial light
- Flexible and thin for ease of integration into any surface and design
- Lightweight and robust
