RF Energy Harvesting to power the Internet of Things; a case study in air pollution monitoring.
The need for sustainable means to power low-energy IoT devices is clear as the costs associated with battery production, use and replacement are restricting market adoption of many IoT applications.
The application of Freevolt* ambient RF energy harvesting to CleanSpace, a new IoT network for air pollution monitoring launched last year, illustrates the potential of sensor applications of IoT when freed from the constraints of batteries or fixed power supplies.
Harnessing the Power of Real Time Analysis and the Internet of Things
Focusing on the user benefits and outcomes of the Internet of Things, this presentation will cover the following points:
- How will the Internet of Things affect you?
- A novel approach – Disruptive Innovation
