Energy Harvesting Europe and WSN/RTLS Award Winners

This week more than 250 people attended the second annual IDTechEx event on Energy Harvesting and Wireless Sensor Networks & Real Time Locating Systems. These two events are co-located given the overlap in topic and attendees were delighted with the breadth of subjects that were covered. The exhibition had trebled from last year to 20 exhibitors.
 
The gala dinner featured the IDTechEx awards which are used to recognise significant achievement in the industry, and to alert potential users of the rapid progress being made. The awards were decided by a panel of independent judges consisting of Dr Richard Waters of the US Military SPAWAR Systems Center, USA, and Simon Aliwell of the UK based Sensors & Instrumentation KTN (Knowledge Transfer Network). The categories and award winners are as follows.

 
 
Best Technology Development of Energy Harvesting

Awards

 

The IDTechEx Energy Harvesting Europe Awards recognise company development and success in all energy harvesting technologies and applications including the pertinent wireless sensor networks and real time locating systems (RTLS) fields.

The award ceremony will be held at the special awards dinner on Wednesday 26 May.

The Awards are hosted by IDTechEx, a leader in providing independent global research and analysis on the development and application of energy harvesting and storage, wireless sensor networks and RTLS.

 
 
Best Technology Development of Energy Harvesting
 
This award will be given to a company which has launched a new product based on energy harvesting (in the last 24 months, May 2008 - May 2010) and is in the process of bringing it to market. The category will be assessed on the technical development of the product, its potential market, and benefits it brings over alternatives.

Best Application of Active RFID/RTLS
 
This award is given to the best implementation of Active RFID (including RTLS) technology (in the last 24 months, May 2008 - May 2010). Here judges will look at the payback and value for the user that implemented the system and how the company overcame hurdles in implementing the technology.
