POWER to the INTERNET of THINGS™
The Internet of Things (IoT) connects ubiquitous devices (“Things”) that are armed with sensors, and possibly actuators, to the Internet. “Things” provide context about the environment they are operating within, and their users, by blending data collection and communication capabilities into everyday objects such as washing machines, footwear, etc. IoT modules can sense, compute, communicate and respond to the environment and are able to exchange data, react autonomously, and possibly trigger reactions and services instantaneously. Data handling is easier and more efficient because acquisition is continuous and does not rely on direct interface from the user. In aggregate, the data that is produced by the Internet of Things can be massive and an overall end to end solution focuses on data acquisition, storage, analysis, and Big Data techniques in order to derive meaning as well as quickly operate on the information that continually streams in.
microGen Systems, Inc. (microGen) is the world’s leading supplier of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions using energy harvesting technologies as the wireless sensor power source, offering versatility spanning across the entire IoT space.
microGen’s IoT, sensor, and EH technology covers the “4-Pillars of IoT”:  Connected Vehicle (tire-based and non-tire intelligent sensor applications),  Industrial Internet,  Intelligent Home, and  Wearables. Energy harvesting power sources include piezoelectric MicroElectroMechanical Systems vibrational energy harvester (piezo-MEMS VEH) using our proprietary piezo-VEH and piezo-sensor design platform, as well as photovoltaic and thermal energy generators depending upon application.
