Avery Dennison and Wiliot Announce Strategic Partnership to Build and Scale the Future of the Internet of Things
Avery Dennison will leverage its R&D capabilities and scale to design and manufacture second-generation Wiliot tags, which are stamp-sized computers powered by Bluetooth that attach to any product or packaging to embed it with intelligence and connectivity to create more agile, profitable, and sustainable supply chains.
In addition, Avery Dennison will integrate Wiliot sensing services (SaaS) with its atma.io connected product cloud, enabling tag sensing information to be added to the end-to-end item-level data of a connected product. Both companies share a vision for the future of the IoT where almost everything is connected to the internet; not just phones, computers, and homes, but also food, medicine, clothing, and nearly everything else. With an ambition to help to eliminate waste and provide unparalleled transparency and consumer connection.
The partnership will help scale the manufacturing capacity of Wiliot tags significantly, and will leverage Avery Dennison’s market development, innovation and ROI expertise to drive value and enable the company to deliver on large projects to some of the world’s largest retail, food & beverage, and pharmaceutical brands.
“Wiliot’s passive Bluetooth technology offers the ability to work with existing infrastructure and provides another accelerator to the growth of IoT. Combined with sensing capabilities and security features as standard, this expands our portfolio and opens up many new use cases for our customers and partners,” stated
“Avery Dennison is the only partner in the world with the manufacturing expertise and efficiency to produce our tags at the scale that is needed to significantly increase the scale of the Internet of Things; their ability to scale as we scale is unquestionable,” stated
