Please give an overview of what Ilika Technologies do.
Ilika technologies are developing a new type of battery, called a solid state battery. These are miniaturized batteries that you can insert in IoT autonomous sensor.
What are you highlighting at the IoT Tech Expo?
We have a roadmap of products, but we are here today to in particular to promote our high temperature batteries. This is a battery that works up to 150 degrees, and that’s pretty unique. I can give two examples of where a battery like this is important; the engine in the car, or a hot piece of machinery in a factory. These need sensors, and the battery in particular needs to operate at a higher temperature. This product is called a P180.
Are there any other applications?
The batteries are important in any device which needs to have a long-life battery that is miniature in size. For example, in med-tech implantable devices, or in a smart car next to the engine where it can be left for years to take measurements. Similarly, in a smart factory, to monitor their health or a machine that works at a high temperature.
Additionally, we can provide smart sensors in your home for a smart home or smart cities. We are really across the board.
