How EnOcean Self Powered Battery Free Devices Enable the Internet of Things
Great America Meeting Room 1
14:15 - 14:40
Several studies are predicting up to a Trillion IoT enabled sensors in 2030. All those sensors must be connected. Given the enormous quantity of smart sensors and devices it seems impossible to wire them or to battery-power wireless sensors. This speech will explore energy harvesting options for wireless sensors.
Speaker Biography (Oliver Sczesny)
Oliver Sczesny graduated in electrical engineering at the University of Applied Science in Würzburg-Schweinfurt in 1993. He started his career at Siemens AG, Corporate Research and Development Division in Munich. He worked in several disciplines focusing on wireless sensor applications and wireless remote interrogation of passive sensors, such as passive surface acoustic wave sensors and ID-Tags for RF ID systems. Oliver then was a co-inventor of the fundamental principles of energy harvesting wireless sensor technology for use in buildings and industrial installations. He left Siemens as a Senior Engineer and together with four other colleagues co-founded EnOcean in 2001. Oliver is living in Salt Lake City, UT since 2011, where he is heading up EnOcean Inc. North American Engineering team and the World Wide Application Engineering Team.
