Kyocera and Nagasaki University Develop "Energy Harvesting Smart Buoy" to Collect Ocean Data

Marine pollution and climate change are critical issues for society. To solve these and help create a more sustainable world, scientists need more reliable ways to monitor and visualize various sea conditions. However, maintaining a stable power supply is a big challenge for continuous data collection at sea.

To overcome this challenge, Nagasaki University and Kyocera developed the Energy Harvesting Smart Buoy. The new Smart Buoy combines tidal-current power generation technology from Nagasaki University and Kyocera IoT technology, enabling stable electric power generation and continuous ocean data collection.
