Decades of sensing

powered by a single coin battery

Welcome to Sensor Driven Ltd.
We are disrupting the remote monitoring industry with our patented, self-energising event detector technology that originated in the University of Bristol. We offer sensors that monitor for decades, powered from a small coin battery.
Please get in touch if you have a long-life, remote monitoring need.

Multiple parameters

Miniature, remote, intelligent tags with 25-year battery life, simultaneously logging
shock events, temperature threshold excursions, and dampness.
NFC readout of logged events, unique product identification, manufacturing data.
Ensure product traceability, monitor asset usage, improve logistics, understand origins and causes of failure.

Condition monitoring

Tags with decades of lifetime, to monitor remote, complex systems.
Preempt failure, ensure product traceability, monitor asset usage, improve logistics. Understand origins, timings and causes of failure.


Zero-maintenance tags for the detection of
flooding, wet, humidity thresholds, water or chemical ingress, leakage.
For insurance, asset management, condition monitoring, automotive, storage.


Remote sensing in harsh environments.
Wireless alerts on environmental changes such as movement, bulging, noise.
Natural disasters, nuclear waste management, oil & gas asset management.

About us

Sensor Driven was formed in 2017 to commercialise a new, patented, self-energising detector technology, developed at the University of Bristol.
Our detector chips use picowatts of power from the output of transducers to trigger the detection, thereby removing the need for a power supply during monitoring. As a result, batteries are only used when events are detected, in order to analyse the event, and to store or wirelessly transmit information. These novel semiconductor detectors use sub-threshold operation to achieve unmatched energy efficiency for continuous monitoring of events. 
We have developed circuits that permit the use of active and passive sensors and transducers. Wake-up can be initiated via a wide range of parameters, including temperature, wetness, sound, shock, motion, RF, and light.
