When Drayson Technologies was working on a compact smart sensor for monitoring air pollution incorporating Freevolt™ RF energy harvesting, Drayson’s proprietary wireless charging technology, they looked to CST STUDIO SUITE® to help solve a tough electromagnetic challenge.

The challenge: recharge the battery of an IOT sensor device. What resulted was a device that can harvest RF energy when sufficient RF power density is available.

Check out the success story on our website for all the details.

“CST offers Complete Technology for simulation, with all its different solvers in one user interface. This meant that we were able to use the best solver for each application: for example, the Time Domain Solver for high-frequency simulations such as designing CleanSpace tag or the Bluetooth antenna, but easily transfer to the Frequency Domain Solver for low-frequency simulations of inductive power transfer. GPU acceleration made it possible to simulate the entire tag efficiently, speeding up simulation time and saving money.”

Excerpt from full story:

THE IDEA: A COMPACT SMART SENSOR FOR MONITORING AIR POLLUTION INCORPORATING FREEVOLT™ RF ENERGY HARVESTING Drayson Technologies is an Internet of Things platform company focused on developing digital health and environmental sensor networks that generate actionable insights to improve people’s lives and deliver value to business and government customers.

CleanSpace is an IoT sensor network to monitor air pollution developed by Drayson Technologies. CleanSpace is now the largest air quality monitoring network for pollution and temperature, combining readings from open-source environmental stations (mostly governmental) and CleanSpace™ Tags, which are mobile personal air pollution sensors that pair with a user’s CleanSpace App or a dedicated gateway to channel the readings to Drayson Technologies’ cloud services. The CleanSpace Tag’s CO accuracy has been scientifically tested by the National Physical Laboratory in the UK.
