The core technologies underlying PervasID’s new products were developed by a team in the University of Cambridge Engineering Department and commercialised through Cambridge Enterprise, which has worked with the founders since 2009. Cambridge Enterprise Seed Funds led a £720k investment round for PervasID which was announced in October 2016.
Gillian Davis, Cambridge Enterprise Technology Manager, said: “It is absolutely fantastic to see PervasID move into the next phase with their company. The founders have worked on this so hard.”
The potential for the PervasID system has been recognised by Victor Christou, CEO of Cambridge Innovation Capital (CIC), “Low cost, long distance sensing of passive RFID tags is an unmet need in the retail and logistics industries. PervasID offers a new approach that facilitates a move towards the ‘Internet of Things’ while offering potential for a significant return on investment in the short term. The retailers that we have introduced to PervasID are excited by the potential of the technology to boost sales in their high street stores.”
Space Ranger 9100 provides greatly extended coverage area compared to PervasID’s current reader, requiring 60 per cent fewer readers and significantly reducing the cost of installation. PervasID is also launching Gate Ranger 9100, a portal reader for strategic locations, such as entrances and exits and loading areas. This provides highly accurate portal solution with tag direction capability.
This EPC Gen-2-compliant ultra-high-frequency RFID reader is based on patented award-winning passive RFID reader technology, it detects the passive tags within a distributed antenna system (DAS).
