NOWI has successfully finished its research at the Green Village. NOWI uses external energy sources as an additional means of power for small sensors. This enables the creation of sensors that are either completely battery-less or hybrid battery sensors with a greatly extended lifetime (source NOWI-energy.com). For developing their product NOWI had started a pilot at The Green Village to test the communication between the sensors of NOWI and gateways with existing technology and communication standards. Currently, the innovation is almost beyond the pilot stage, and is more and more being used in practice. After tests at The Green Village, NOWI continues to collaborate with the municipality of Amsterdam, Prorail, and The Port of Rotterdam.
