How low-powered Wi-Fi sensors are the future of IoT.
The Internet of Things (IoT) will be made up of millions of connected devices across many diverse applications; covering smart/connected homes, wearables, healthcare, industry and more. To be easy to deploy and manage these devices will require battery-powered sensors that will last out in the field for several years.
Wi-Fi has established itself as one of the most popular technologies providing connectivity for these sensor networks. In this talk we will look at:
- Various applications of Wi-Fi in sensor-based networks
- Typical power consumption scenarios for sensor networks
- Requirements of Wi-Fi silicon to meet long battery-life demands
- Imagination’s low-power Wi-Fi solution and its power consumption metrics
