ALBUQUERQUE, NM – 10 JANUARY 2018 – K&A Wireless LLC (the “Company” or “K&A”) is pleased to announce it has been awarded TECP Funding (Technology Enhancement for Commercial Partnerships) from the National Science Foundation (NSF) @NSFSBIR.
K&A will utilize the funds to mass-customize the Wi-NOx™ IoT NOx monitoring system for vehicles and will focus on access and development into global markets including India.
K&A is working with its commercialization partner SensorComm Technologies to advance the Wi-NOx™ system providing real-time measurement and monitoring of NOx emissions at the point of origin where pollution enters the environment. The Wi-NOx™ sensor is installed at the tailpipe of consumer and commercial vehicles in the transportation and smart city segments. Wi-NOx™ operates independently of other vehicle parameters and is the cornerstone of a global pollution mitigation strategy.
K&A was 1 of 16 companies selected by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to exhibit at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at Eureka Park in Las Vegas January 9-12, 2018.
Additional information will be made available in future news releases.
