Amanda. The world in your hands

Horizon 2020 AMANDA European Project

Lightricity is a key technology partner in the European H2020 AMANDA project (€4million total budget). AMANDA stands for: Autonomous self powered miniaturized intelligent environmental sensing and asset tracking in smart IoT environments. This challenging 3-year project, lead by CERTH, gathers 8 EU partners (SMEs and research organisations) and aims at combining 4 of the 5 senses (sight, hearing, smell and touch) within a single sensing platform that will be no larger than a business card.

NHS. National Institute for Health Research

NHIR: Autonomous X-ray detection

Lightricity is jointly developing with the University of Surrey, Cheyney Design and Development, and the Royal Surrey County Hospital, the first self-powered conformal X-ray detector for dosimetry, imaging and radiotherapy applications.

SBRI. Government challenges. Ideas from business. Innovative solutions

SBRI: Monitoring of workers in nuclear environments

Lightricity, Kymira and NSG have been awarded a phase 1 SBRI contract to develop a unique solution that will better monitor and support nuclear decommissioning operators working in hazardous environments. 

Innovate UK. Knowledge Transfer Network

Innovate UK (United Kingdom)

Lightricity has participated in several Innovate UK projects to develop its component technology, integrated power supply sub-systems (in collaboration with Ilika) and autonomous IoT sensing platforms (in collaboration with Gas Sensing Solutions)

European Commission. Beneficiary of Horizon 2020 SME Instrument

SME Instrument (European Commission)

Lightricity has been awarded the SME Instrument EU grant funding to develop the next generation of Photovoltaic Energy Harvesting devices 

OxLEP. driving economic growth

OxLEP (Oxfordshire)

Lightricity has been awarded an Innovation Support for Business grant (ISfB) from OxLEP, that aims at supporting business opportunities in Oxfordshire


SPECTRAIL project for UK Network Rail

 SPECTRAIL is an IoT sensing platform which enables truly intelligent infrastructure. It is simple, low cost, fast to fit, maintenance free and able to sense at a majority of locations, yet, through its novel architecture, remains very flexible to local requirements. Jointly developped by AP Sensing, Pyreos, CSA Catapult and Lightricity, the platform will allow the infrastructure custodian the ability to collect data at sites previously inaccessible to power or connectivity, or at those deemed too high cost. The benefits to the infrastructure owner arise from a new ease in collecting targeted and actionable asset condition knowledge, enabling a predict-and-prevent maintenance strategy across many asset types - benefits which can be passed directly to rail users.
