At Stokes Power we are developing a vibration energy harvesting solution for the Internet of Things (IoT). The harvester can be used to indefinitely provide power to self-contained sensor devices for a range of purposes related to the IoT.
Our harvester, the VEH-1 is a wideband and tunable electromagnetic device which exploits a novel, patented velocity amplification principle to enhance the performance of a mechanical-to-electrical transducer. Predictive maintenance, self-optimizing production, and automated inventory management are key sectors driving the development of this harvester. Please email us if you would like to receive a copy of the data sheet.
Currently, this work is carried out at Stokes Laboratories in the University of Limerick under Enterprise Ireland’s commercialisation fund programme. As we expand, we are continually looking for new partners/application areas. Feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss the technology further.
