PA’s Frazer Bennett, a technology expert, is quoted in an article in E&T Magazine. The article features a new device, CleanSpace, which PA worked on with Drayson Technologies.
CleanSpace is an air sensor which measures air pollution. The device uses technology, called Freevolt, which can use energy from broadcast, mobile and Wi-Fi networks and turn it into a small amount of electricity. This is the first practical application of Freevolt.

The article goes on to talk about the first practical application of Freevolt – the CleanSpace Tag air sensor, which measures air pollution.
Frazer explains that PA helped to develop the CleanSpace device and goes on to say: “We were impressed with the Freevolt technology and its wide applicability to power the Internet of Things.”
The article concludes by explaining that the CleanSpace device completely eliminates the need for cable-based charging.
