The Impinj platform has won the IDTechEx Internet of Things Applications Award for its significant commercial success in shipping over 13 billion RAIN RFID ICs used to connect things.
The award was presented at the IDTechEx Internet of Things Applications conference and tradeshow, hosted in Berlin on April 27-28, which focusses on the application and business cases of IoT. It includes the full spectrum of technologies from IP-addressed sensor nodes to RAIN RFID tags, all of which will make up the fabric of the Internet of Things.
Criteria for winning the award included showing strong success in commercializing IoT technology. The award entries were judged by two eminent companies involved in IoT:
- Elaine Cook, Strategic Marketing Director, Intel
- Dr Kars-Michiel H Lenssen, Principal Scientist, Philips Lighting Research
Of all the entries, the judges selected the Impinj platform which delivers Item Intelligence, an item’s unique identity, location and authenticity, through both hardware and software elements using RAIN RFID.
Impinj has shipped over 13 billion RAIN RFID ICs and more than one million connectivity points globally across many industries including apparel, medical supplies, automobile parts, drivers licenses, food and more to applications such as inventory management, patient safety, asset tracking and item authentication, delivering real-time information to businesses about items they create, manage, transport and sell.
One of the judges commented on the Impinj platform, “It truly relates to the Internet of Things, connecting numerous things to the Internet, thanks to its (battery-less) tags. Differentiating itself from most other nominees Impinj has rapidly grown in the real market and built a wide base of users.
The real-life adaptation by the market on a rather large scale is not often achieved in the emerging IoT area. This, together with the total system solution that is provided, justifies recognition with an Award.”
