Wavelite receives the 2018 CES Eureka Park Climate Change award


Wavelite announced it has received the prestigious CES 2018 Eureka Park Climate Change award. The award highlights the leadership and innovation of consumer technology startups in combating climate change.

A TandemLaunch portfolio company, Wavelite is a software- and hardware-based connectivity platform that allows sensor data to ride existing signals and reflect them to their destination. This results in reduced power consumption for wireless sensors, causing their lifetime to dramatically increase and therefore minimizing the carbon footprint of IoT devices. The dramatically reduced power consumption of wireless sensors delivers throughputs in the same orders of magnitude as that of the recycled signal, achieving more reasonable data rates.

“We are proud to receive Consumer Technology Association climate change innovator  award at CES,” Bahar Partov, Wavelite co-founder told MTLinTECH. “One of our primary focuses at Wavelite is to introduce energy efficient Internet of things (IoT) solutions that target sustainability, use cases are in connected devices  applied in building automation  and urban agriculture. This award is  significant   for us as it recognizes  Wavelite team efforts to deliver sustainable  and energy efficient solutions  not only to the consumer electronics  sector, but also to   diverse types of  ecosystems that we are living at.

The Euraka Park Climate Change award isn’t the first prize won by Wavelite’s team. The startup was awarded the $100,000 investment prize from FIA Smart Cities in July 2017.

Sensors are everywhere in today’s world, and they allow us to understand, predict, and maximize the utility of a given environment. Sensors are used to increase crop yield efficiency in farms, and for environmental monitoring in warehouses or occupancy sensors in offices, just to name a few. These sensors need a power source to operate, which often comes in the form of batteries. But batteries are a finite power reserve that ultimately is drained and needs to be replaced. Wavelite enables ultra-low power sensors, reducing the power consumption of wireless sensors to a level on par with harvestable ambient energy in our environment.

By removing the upper limit imposed by batteries, sensors can be used in areas where battery maintenance has been an issue in the past. Self-powered sensors deposited in the soil could be used in agriculture, while in healthcare they could dramatically increase the life time of the sensors and doctors could receive patients bio-signals in real-time. Wifi would be the only thing necessary.

“Our short term goals for 2018 is to have  new additions  to out team to accelerate our product development road map. Showcasing Wavelite  at CES was a great  opportunity for us to introduce our technology and vision with the game changers in the IoT sector. As a result, we expect to see more engagement from potential industrial and business partners with whom we share common visions.  Our engagements during the upcoming months will help to better clarify  our long term strategies.”

    Hi! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog like yours require a lot of work?
    I’m brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and views online.

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the
    book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the
    message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog.
    A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.
