Matrix Industries failed to demonstrate the capability of its thermoelectric energy harvesters to power IoT devices

December 06, 2019 | Case Study

Energy harvesting is not an alien concept. Large-scale power generators convert natural energy into electricity, thus powering millions of electric utilities. However, the story is quite different for small-scale applications. There are huge gaps between energy harvesting and IoT devices. Aside from solar-powered IoT sensors, the other common types of small energy harvesters are only used in a limited number of applications. Matrix Industries develops thermoelectric energy harvesters to power smartwatches and IoT sensors – but its use case is a catastrophic example of demonstrating its core energy harvesting technology.
