Pedram Mousavi, Ph.D., P.Eng., Rashid Mirzavand Boroujeni, Ph.D., Mohammad Mahdi Honari Kalateh, Ph. D., and Hossein Saghlatoon, Ph.D. founded SenZIoT Technologies aimed to commercialize smart selfautonomous sensors for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) in home or industrial applications. One of the main challenges of this type of wireless sensor is power consumption, which increases the maintenance costs of networks, especially with a large number of devices. Recently, SenZIoT proposed new concepts for implementing zero-power wireless sensors, which will dramatically reduce power, component count and cost. Founded with local collaborators Landmark Homes, SenZIoT’s proposed direct conversion sensor integrates both sensing and transmitting units, reducing the cost and eliminating the need for wired or batteries for the sensor nodes.
