Re: Lag of battery technology
@ Rich: Thanks for sharing the information. This is exactly what I wanted to point to. If chemistry is directed well, new dimensions would appear. Unfortunately, I do not notice satisfying development in this area.

Re: more cost effective
Yes I have read the article and its very interesting and the Walden pond is very great that he had introduced us with such a technology and one big salute to him .

Re: Lag of battery technology
You're probably right, L2. Big batteries is where we'll see the next breakthrus. Holds promise for the electric car to become more affordable that the big batteries will improve.

Re: more cost effective
Excellent article and really speaks to us.

We have a battery free integrated system "GreenPatch" that is batteey free and measures temperatire and occupancy and sends the data wirelessly for further  ation or sent back fir actuation.

Here is more infpormation about it:http://optixtal.com/optixtalwp.htm

 

(The "wp" at the end of our link is our salute to Walden Pond and the "self reliance" that we tnink it signifies.)

Re: Lag of battery technology
Interesting, but probably for big batteries - the last line of the article suggests a typical residential electrical service will be taxed to charge the structure described. Also, they say it isn't quite a supercapacitor, and isn't quite a battery, in terms of charge/discharge rates. They have addressed recharging and safety in their thinking. Like I said, I think the first breakthroughs like this one will be for EV batteries.

Re: Lag of battery technology
Kareem, Here is a link to some battery technology that uses nanoporous materials and promises exceptional energy density:

Re: self-powered wireless sensor
I am sure that the sensor would generate electricity by any way that information I have seen is that the system would change the proton into electricity this can be done easily and as the result we get the small amount of enery which is enough to make the sensors run .

Re: Tesla's dream?
Might be a little different. Tesla's dream was for energy delivery, this is for signal sensing and transforming using wireless energy.

Re: bridge sensors
This is really useful in Wireless Sensor Networks where ultra low power is needed. This SoC solution with energy harvest integrated will be an ideal device. Like it.

Re: self-powered wireless sensor
Thanks for the great technical detail. I especially appreciate the warning about providing some form of energy storage to take out the spikes.

A new version of EDN is now available that is specially designed for tablet viewing, and the next issue will focus on the IoT.
Many IoT development projects forego security in the belief their data isn't appealing to thieves, but the user's privacy also needs protection, and that will require data security.
The IoT Privacy Summit held a clear message for developers: Privacy must be protected in the IoT.

Balancing Sensor Cost Against IoT Reliability

7|18|14   |   1:47   |   (0) comments


In IoT, using an intermediary sensor controller makes sensor networks cheaper, but it also creates a single point of failure. There's a cost to using directly addressable sensors beyond the sensor cost itself, and that's the cost of securing your sensors.

Good IoT Standards Aim at the Right Targets

7|17|14   |   2:14   |   (0) comments


IoT standards initiatives could be a monumental waste of time if we don't focus them where they count: on the connection between sensor controllers and applications. We need consistent APIs here because developers won't do a zillion versions of their software to fit all the possible interfaces.

Contextual Services as the IoT Driver

7|15|14   |   2:03   |   (0) comments


Mobile services have to be "contextual" in that they have to reflect the physical, social, and event contexts in which the user is operating. The biggest benefit of the IoT may be in getting enough useful information to build contextual services.

The IoT & IPv6

7|9|14   |   2:13   |   (0) comments


We've heard for decades that we need to move to IPv6, because we're running out of Internet addresses, and we've somehow worked around it. Flash: The workaround doesn't work with most devices we think will make up the IoT, and IPv6 may be a mandatory step.

Managing the Cost of IoT

7|9|14   |   2:14   |   (0) comments


Experience says the cost of IoT depends most on the cost of the sensor network and the cost of storage. There are steps you can take to manage both, and these will help you make the business case for IoT more easily and also ease ongoing ownership costs.
Tom Nolle
Standards & the IoT

7|9|14   |   2:11   |   (0) comments


The buzz created by Microsoft joining the AllSeen alliance raises the question of the importance of standards in IoT, and it's not an easy one. It may depend on just how much generalized sensor deployment and use you think will happen.

Interpreting Events in Your IoT Application

7|3|14   |   2:10   |   (0) comments


The geographic dispersal of sensors in IoT can wreak havoc with the interpretation of events by your control processes because of issues with recognizing event time stamps and also analyzing the context of events relative to each other.

There's a Lot of Cloud in IoT's Future

6|25|14   |   2:10   |   (0) comments


The distributability and scale of the Internet of Things makes it a logical place to apply cloud technology and to harness cloud services. In fact, cloud/IoT symbiosis may be the most important thing to watch as a metric for assessing how far IoT has and will come.

Publish & Subscribe in Your IoT

6|25|14   |   2:14   |   (0) comments


The use of publish-and-subscribe connections to IoT sensors can provide a lot of benefits, ranging from DoS protection and general policy/compliance control, to ensuring that users of data can find it without having to browse through hosts of non-relevant sensors.

Is There More IoT News Than Apple's?

6|25|14   |   2:09   |   (0) comments


Apple's IoT announcements enter it into a market already established. GE has some new IoT technology that could expand on what's already the largest IoT application, RFID, by adding in imprintable sensors.

The Network Issues for IoT: More Than 'Traffic'

6|25|14   |     |   (0) comments


People think about IoT network impact in terms of traffic, but most IoT devices aren't big traffic generators. What matters in an IoT control network is low latency and low packet loss, and these issues may drive IoT networks to a different and separate place vs. normal enterprise networks.

Three Concerns for the IoT: Scale

Scale, standards, and interoperability are significant concerns that the Internet of Things must address. This vblog is about scaling.

There's More Than One IoT

6|16|14   |   2:09   |   (0) comments


The IoT isn't homogeneous. It's really a collection of different technology communities based on control or open networks, smart or dumb sensors, and fixed or mobile/variable collectors.

You Need the Cloud for the IoT to Succeed

6|11|14   |   2:12   |   (2) comments


The IoT is more than scattering sensors around, it's also doing useful things with the outputs. IoT applications are dynamic, so dynamic that only cloud models can support them effectively. We need to be working on the intersection of IoT and the cloud to insure everything connects efficiently.
