By Robert Shih, Published on Nov 16, 2018

The Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM) has announced what it calls the:

world’s first fully autonomous camera that can be deployed like a sticker, opening up new possibilities for surveillance and IOT sensors. The patented Witness IOT camera is solar-powered and includes a specially designed CMOS image sensor consuming less than 700uW.

What is the commercial potential for this camera? We spoke with CSEM and obtained further details which we examine inside.
