The All Seen Alliance has scored an interesting new member with the EnOcean Alliance, a group of 300 companies dedicated to sustainable building controls and automation using wireless energy harvesting sensors and technology. The EnOcean Alliance joined AllSeen Alliance Thursday and will demonstrate how the two organization can use their two technologies together at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona next week.
The EnOcean Alliance is a group that promotes EnOcean technology specifically. EnOcean manufactures and markets energy harvesting wireless modules that are interesting for the internet of things because they do away with the need for batteries or wiring. Instead they use solar, temperature changes, kinetic energy or other techniques to power sensors and then the transmission of state around a network. The technology is used in devices sold around the world, which means that these devices might soon get All Joyn compatibility as well.
