At the core of Free Dynamics’ platform technology are long lasting battery-free dynamical systems which can be exploited for tasks like sensing, timekeeping, data logging and secure authentication. These devices can be miniaturized, manufactured cost-effectively and deployed at a previously unreachable scale. Our first application is geared towards environmental monitoring in temperature-controlled supply chains.
In the pharma/food industry, disruption to ideal temperature conditions causes loss of potency or safety, leading to adverse effects on public health. Temperature excursions in supply chains lead to over $34 billion in losses in the healthcare industry every year. Compared to existing solutions which are bulky and expensive, we enable an economical and quantifiable temperature monitoring solution at per-unit level. Additionally, its zero-downtime and continuous logging features can facilitate pinpointing faults in the supply chain for future mitigation.
