The iRemoTap with wireless LAN module helps save power
Ubiquitous Corp, a Japan-based firm that deals with middleware for embedded devices, developed a power bar, the iRemoTap, with the aim of visualizing electricity used in a home, particularly ideal in Japan given the power shortages. It contains a microcomputer, a wireless LAN module while the power consumption information of each outlet is regularly transmitted to a cloud server. As a result, it becomes possible to make a graph of the change in power consumption in a home and to control power supply to each outlet on the Internet.
More demonstrations will be available at the iRemoTap in its booth at the 14th Embedded Systems Expo (ESEC), which will take place from May 11, 2011, in Tokyo. Ubiquitous expects to provide the iRemoTap for a price of several thousand yen.
