Seeonic, co-founded by ECE Nicholas Singh has successful award-winning implementation
Seeonic, co-founded by alumnus Nicholas Singh, partnered with Interstate Batteries to deploy an inventory management system in more than 2,000 locations across the country. In operation for over a year, the successful deployment of Seeonic's IoT-based RFID technology has won Interstate Batteries RFID Journal's Best Implementation Award. This award is given to a company who uses RFID technology to "improve its manufacturing, supply chain or retail operations". Interstate Batteries collaborated with Seeonic to deploy the latter's SightWare devices to collect inventory data, transmitting it to Seeniq, Seeonic's cloud service. Nicholas (on the right in this picture) graduated with his MSEE degree from the Department of ELectrical and Computer Engineering in August 2006.
