Wi-Charge and WiseShelf collaborated to showcase a wirelessly-powered retail shelf technology.
“With long-range wireless power from Wi-Charge, our smart shelves can be deployed quickly and efficiently, without the costly and inconvenient power cable install.”
Shalom Nakdimon, CEO of WiseShelf
Whether to power “smart shelf” functionality, to eliminate batteries in electronic shelf labels or power ‘endcap signs’, the shelf needs power. Routing power cables on the floor is a safety hazard and dropping them from the ceiling is expensive and ugly.
Wi-Charge partnered with WiseShelf to deliver power to the retail shelf. The WiseShelf system uses this to provide retailers with real-time insight on stock levels and shelf arrangements, turning standard retail shelves into IoT devices.
