EKOOR Seeks to Revolutionize the IoT with its Green Internet of Things Philosophy
EKOOR Green Internet of Things philosophy seeks to minimize our future dependency on non-renewable sources of energy by offering a reliable renewable energy source to power Internet of Things (IoT) beacons, sensors and actuators.
Cisco, one of the biggest global network solutions provider, predicts 25 billion Internet IoT devices by the end of this year and a staggering 50 billion devices by 2020. While this translates to better connected life that is safer and easier to live, experts believe that the mushrooming IoT will have its tool on the environment.
Even though each smart device, each sensor, each actuator might run on a couple of mA, powering up billions of these day in day out for a full year translate to a tangible figure. With most of the remote IoT devices running on battery power, we are talking of over 100 billion batteries used and disposed in a year. This is quite a carbon footprint.
EKOOR’s green internet of things seeks to combat this catastrophe in the making by creating beacons that rely on ambient light to function. Speaking at the official launch of the EKOOR philosophy, Gayan Gamage, founder and CEO, EKOOR said, “There is a large carbon footprint that could be eliminated if we resort to using alternative power sources as some of these devices could just be powered from energy around them.”
To Gayan, there is more to building the IoT than just piecing up a couple of intelligent sensors, actuators and systems without caring about their impacts to the earth’s fragile balance of nature. The Green internet of things is an initiative that will not only cut down on our non-renewable energy resources, but also help you monitor and control what you cannot replace closely.
EKOOR has a complete IoT system ready for deployment. Everything, from the Apple iBeacon and Google Eddystone compatible beacons to the framework and system that will let customers customize or...
