Title: Reaching 10 years battery life in IOT end device – challenges and key technologies.
Abstract: In this talk we describe methods to reach 10-years of battery life for Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) wireless sensor network (WSN) using a platform called the I3Mote. I3Mote provides connected sensor nodes for tough industrial environment and a number of I3Motes can form a large-scale coverage of data collectors or actuators. The goal is to achieve 10-years network life time for all the connected battery powered nodes with a duty cycle of data collection (uplink traffic) in 10 seconds. Due to the ubiquitous optimization of hardware (sensors, connectivity, MCU, HMI and PM), protocol, localized data process, etc. we see a light through the tunnel. This talk will go through techniques of power optimization at device and network level to extend the battery life to industry standard of 10 years.
