Israeli company Wiliot has launched an innovation kit that provides companies of all sizes and budgets a fast, intuitive and affordable way to discover and experience ambient IoT technology.

The kit equips companies with an easy onramp to begin exploring and building ambient IoT products for supply chains, retail, CPG, healthcare, agriculture and more.

The innovation kit is offered alongside Wiliot’s starter kit, which is a plug-and-play experience using an IoT Pixel-ready coffee cup that demonstrates item-level temperature monitoring out of the box. The innovation kit moves a step further into the world of ambient IoT by providing a more hands-on experience with the Wiliot platform, and IoT Pixels that can be attached to items selected by the kit user. 

The kit includes Wiliot IoT Pixels that are tiny, postage-stamp-sized computers that can sense temperature, location and more, and power themselves by harvesting radio waves. Because they cost just pennies, the Pixels can attach to goods and assets enabling intelligence and producing actionable insights.

Also in the kit are edge devices that energise and relay IoT Pixel data, access to cloud servicesthat enable actionable insights, and digital guides for experiencing how ambient IoT solves business problems.

Wiliot’s mission is to make everything an agent of change, unlocking access to an ambient IoT that adds intelligence and connectivity to reusable packaging, apparel, pharmaceuticals, food and nearly any other product.

“We’re illuminating what was once in the dark by providing companies with actionable insights – and the status of every product at every moment – and the implications are profound,” said Thadious Fisher, vice president at Wiliot. “With real-time sensing and product lifecycle traceability, food is safer and fresher, medicine is more secure, and goods and assets are easily located.”

Wiliot is a SaaS company whose platform connects the digital and physical worlds using its IoT Pixel tagging technology. Founded in 2017, the company is based in Caesarea, Israel, and has an office in San Diego, California.
