The Rejoice of Getting Acknowledged
Viezo is a startup, established in early 2018 with the idea and goal to help fourth Industrial revolution expand faster and cheaper without needing to think about powering the sensing equipment. The technology can convert vibrations into usable electricity, therefore powering sensors indefinitely which are deployed on vibrating, dynamic machinery.
Viezo is the first company in the world, commercializing the vibration energy harvesting technology within the piezoelectric PVDF material, which is environmentally friendly and low-cost. Viezo team has expressed their sincere happiness to be recognized in this competition. Their collective commitment of time and effort has contributed to the development process that lead to this success.
“Each startup competition gives us the acknowledgment we need to move forward in our development process. Each win is a step closer to our goal: for everybody to know about vibration energy harvesting and how it can change the IoT field forever”Vytautas Jaškevičius, CBDO & Co- Founder of Viezo
The Invite to Participate at RailTech Europe 2021 // LIVE
Second achievement includes the invitation Viezo received to participate at RailTech Europe 2021 // LIVE at the Tech stage on 1st of April during the session on the topic “Data analytics”.
