  • Wiliot, a maker of battery-free Bluetooth-based chips to tag onto consumer-packaged goods.
  • The company, which calls itself a “sensing-as-a-service” and an internet of things (IoT) firm, has developed low-cost, self-powered stamp-sized computerized-tags, that can be attached to any product or packaging, to get a sense of its physical and environmental conditions.
  • This data can then be used by manufacturers and suppliers to glean information about usage and waste, while also enabling consumers to get fresher, safer products, foods and medication.
