WibiSol

ArtESun OPV

A flower that captures light and sends information.

Wibicom develops together with the most prestigious European technology centers, organic photovoltaic (OPV) cells as a new photovoltaic antenna material for wireless communication applications.

The consortium in which Wibicom participates consists of research institutes, technology centers, and companies which are internationally renowned: VTT (Finland), Fraunhofer (Germany), IMEC (Belgium), Imperial College of London (UK), Ikerlan (Spain), Corning (France), Onyx Solar (Spain), and Confidex (Finland).

The 9 partners will develop high-efficiency technology based on flexible, lightweight, arbitrary shape organic photovoltaic cells for industrial applications.

APPLICATIONS

  • Environmental Monitoring

    Monitor your environment for a precision weather station, and measure air quality, water contamination, or flow level.

  • Activity Monitoring (wearable)

    Light and small devices used as fitness apparel.

  • Positioning/Location tracking

    Asset, people, or animal tracking: an intelligent, wirelessly addressable system can be a dynamic means of providing information or facilitate inventory control.

  • Smart City

    Enhance urban well-being, traffic control, or adopt smart parking. Add connected beacons to send information to passersby.

  • Precision Farming

    Observe, assess and control agricultural practice and the environment. Monitor surface, soil and water levels, in the field or in greenhouses.

  • Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

    Infrastucture monitoring, Oil and Gas, Manufacturing industry, Transportation. Industrial analytics turns data from sensors into actionable insights.

  • Security

    Get alerted when there is an intrusion. Deploy on fences or at your premises.

  • Smart Building

    Enhance your quality of life and achieve significant energy savings.


TECHNOLOGY

 

Based on a patented technology, the WibiSol provides power to a battery-less or a battery rechargeable wireless system and takes part in the radio antenna design. It stores enough energy to be able to function perpetuously. It does not require any maintenance, as you don't need to regularly replace or recharge batteries in inconvenient places. It enables cost and energy savings and a compact design.

 

How it Works

A module that captures light and sends or receives signals.

The WibiSol combines both optical and radio-frequency antenna functions. the WibiSol transforms light into electricity via a photovoltaic module to power all active circuits in the system. It delivers, through its power management interface, electricity to the sensors and the radio transceiver. The excess energy is stored to ensure continuous operation of the wireless system when there is insufficient light. The radio circuit transmits or receives data via the WibiSol, which then acts as the radio antenna.

The WibiSol employs the right photovoltaic technology. It may use semiconductor technologies, such as cristalline silicon and gallium arsenide, thin films, organic, dye sensitised, or other state-of-the-art photovoltaic process.

 

WibiSol technology

Advantages

A dual function device.

Conventional wireless systems employ a separate antenna and a photovoltaic module or battery source. Hence, the antenna is either placed inside the package or externally, far from the photovoltaic module as it becomes a source of interference for the antenna. Wibicom engineers the photovoltaic module in a way that it becomes an antenna, tuned at a specified frequency. The WibiSol eliminates an extra component in the system, achieving a higher integration.

 

Technical Benefits of the WibiSol:

  • Embedded photovoltaic/antenna module
  • No interference between photovoltaic module and the antenna
  • The antenna is exposed for best performance
  • Same performance as a standard antenna
  • May be stacked vertically
  • Save space and volume for your system
  • May be flexible and conformable to objects
  • May be designed into any size and shape
  • Has an integrated power management unit
  • May be implemented as an antenna array
  • Sleek design
