Who We Are

SODAQ is an acronym for Solar Powered Data Acquisition, and was founded in 2012 by father and son Jan Willem & Ollie Smeenk. They noticed there was an inherent need for smart communication solutions in remote areas. To fill that gap in the market they developed and began deploying low-energy, solar powered weather stations across rural Africa, this turned into one of the first Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in the world.

Since then a decade has passed, the company size of our operation has grown and we have more IoT solutions, products and development projects.

We are committed to crafting the future of IoT in an impactful way. By 2050, a total of 100 billion connected smart devices are expected. These devices would fill approximately 500 Olympic sized swimming pools with AA batteries per year. We want to power these devices smarter. Using the abundance of energy around us, while making the device extremely low power. We build for an improved future.

Mission

By the year 2050, the world will have a total of 100 billion smart devices. That’s enough AA batteries to fill 500 Olympic swimming pools. 

As a leader in the field, it’s our duty to shape the future of the Internet of Things (IoT) in a way that is both sustainable AND impactful. Is a smart device truly “smart” if it’s not sustainably powered? We don’t think so, and we won’t stop until truly smart devices guide the way forward.

History

Standing for Solar Powered Data Acquisition, SODAQ started in 2013 offering weather stations across Africa. The necessity for communication solutions in remote areas combined with sensors turned into one of the first Internet of Things (IoT) solutions globally. Our devices are always based on low power and sustainability, from day one. Nothing in this regard has changed except the size of our operation and the number of IoT solutions, projects, and products.
