The award highlights the leadership and innovation of consumer technology startups in combating climate change.
“Our focus is to reduce power consumption in healthcare, smart cities, agriculture, and many other industries, allowing for a more sustainable ecosystem.” Co-founder Charlotte Savage explains.
Wavelite is a software- and hardware-based connectivity platform that allows sensor data to ride existing signals and reflect them to their destination. This results in reduced power consumption for wireless sensors, causing their lifetime to dramatically increase and therefore minimizing the carbon footprint of IoT devices.
This is not the first prize won by the team: in July 2017, the startup was awarded the $100,000 investment prize from FIA Smart Cities.
Congratulations to the whole team!
