Sensemakers March Newsletter

From: SensemakersAMS

Hi all,

Spring is in the air; I’m writing this watching the robins robin that clearly made a nest in the bush next to my window😊
Wonderful to see nature awaken for another cycle, feels good to know that with the Amsterdam Sound Project we also help Sensing Clues fight poaching!

One of the challenges we face is energy. A lot is going on in this area, especially when it comes to harvesting from ambient radio frequencies. The companies to watch are Nowi that offers hybrid battery options, Wiliot, that recently demonstrated a sticker-sized Bluetooth sensor tag incorporating an ARM processor, and Semtech, whose nano-tag is equipped with an ultra-thin printed battery. The latter two foresee that battery free disposable electronics are the foundation for future IoT systems. However, makes me wonder how that relates to sustainability…

Our Sound Project just started so we’re prototyping a first reference model, every first Wednesday of the month you can find us at OBA, working on this an other projects, feel free to join!

Get involved
For those who like prototyping, attached you find a job opportunity for a mechanical assistant at SODAQ!
Feel free to share your own by contacting us or sharing it in Slack or the Meetup Forum.

Nice blog/tutorial on getting machine learning running on microcontrollers, using Tensorflow-lite
