Innovative technology will create the first demonstrator of a fully printed IoT node

A sustainable communications solution for the Internet of Things (IoT) is under development. The solution stems from a combination of light and radio communications, in a flexible way, exploring a technology based on printed electronics. More than 11 eleven entities are working on this solution as part of the SUPERIOT (Truly Sustainable Printed Electronics-based IoT Combining Optical and Radio Wireless Technologies) project, funded by the European Commission (€5.6M). There are three Portuguese entities involved - the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC), the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and Wavecom.
