EcoTech Computers partnered with the University of Florida to provide engineering students and visitors with wayfinding kiosks powered by solar energy.
“The self-contained system draws its power requirements directly from a solar array and stores the collected energy in its deep cycle battery bank, allowing kiosk usability even in times of little to no sun exposure. Even the kiosk’s fanless processor and 21-inch LED high contrast monitor operate without the need for a traditional power supply. The university gathers information from each solar farm and displays it directly on the kiosk, refreshing it every 15 minutes. The kiosk also provides wayfinding to each of the solar farms, along with access to the university’s website.”
