About Everactive

Self-powered IoT systems unlock a new age

of data intelligence for our physical world.

Our Story

Everactive is a deep technology company whose self-powered IoT origins stretch back over a decade to the pioneering ultra-low-power circuit research of our co-founders at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  Upon receiving their doctorates, each took teaching positions at their respective alma maters—the University of Virginia and the University of Michigan.  After several years of incubation and several groundbreaking proof points for self-powered IoT systems, the technology was licensed out of those two universities; Everactive was born.


The core circuit design and wireless communication IP has served as the building block for Everactive’s batteryless, self-powered IoT systems.  The company has since added all of the requisite pieces—cloud software, data analytics, systems expertise, and industrial design—to develop a complete end-to-end sensing solution.  Now, with the technology fully commercialized, Everactive continues to innovate with a suite of industrial sensing products focused on delivering critical insights that are simply not possible with battery-powered devices.

Our Vision

To improve the quality & efficiency
of peoples’ lives by enabling the
next computing revolution with self-powered IoT systems.

Technology Milestones

Redefining the Radio


With a sub-threshold digital baseband for addressing interference rejection, the world’s first sub-micro Watt always-on wakeup receiver fundamentally changes the approach to designing a wireless network.

Revolutionizing Power Management


Able to operate continuously from only a few degrees Celsius across a thermoelectric generator, Everactive’s first energy harvesting power management unit recorded the lowest startup and operating voltages and demonstrated the ability to power devices entirely from low levels of harvested energy.

Inventing Batteryless IoT


Integrating sensing, processing, memory, radios, energy harvesting-power management, Everactive created a fully integrated wireless system-on-chip that consumed a mere 6.5 µW of average active power while operating a physiological wearable device.  That was orders of magnitude lower than what “low power” devices had achieved to date!

Engineering Self-Powered Systems


IP related to several core circuit block radio, power management, and design were the foundation to assemble small form-factor and flexible packaged devices to be deployed in rugged industrial applications.  With the ability to harvest energy from multiple sources and sense an array of inputs, our Eversensor was built for hazardous locations and harsh environments to collect data where others can’t.

Building the End-to-End
Technology Stack


Because we’re able to collect data that others can’t, we require expertise in networking, software analytics, and data science to help make sense of sensed data. We continue to add world-class talent in these fields so that we can seamlessly deliver insights across a range of assets and within a range of environments.

Releasing the 1st Application:
Steam Trap Monitoring


Everactive released a completely self-powered Steam Trap Monitoring solution that provides real-time insights via a proprietary algorithm, offering a cost-effective, easy-to-use solution that can save an array of industries tens of billions of dollars and dramatically reduce wasted energy and carbon emissions.

Releasing the 2nd Application:
Machine Health Monitoring


Based upon Everactive’s Gen 2 chip platform, this product not only incorporates the ability to perform continuous vibration analysis, but also improves the wireless range, power requirements, and edge computing capabilities of the Eversensor network.  The Machine Health Monitoring solution provides always-on insight into the health of rotating machines (motors, pumps, fans, compressors, etc.) in order to reduce downtime, optimize maintenance costs, and improve energy efficiency throughout a range of operations.

Opening the Developer Platform
for Hyperscale IoT Innovation


Everactive has opened its core batteryless IoT platform to partners so that developers can leverage those building blocks to build & create a breadth of innovative hyperscale IoT applications.  Removing the battery will revolutionize a range of industries and transform the way in which we interact with our physical world.

Releasing the First Evaluation Kits


Our Gen 3-based devices let developers and engineers test the capabilities of our best-in-class self-powered IoT technology so that they can easily integrate our hardware and new data streams into their applications.
