WSN - Maintenance-Free Environment: Technologies and Markets Developments
Published: January 2, 2019 Content info:
Description

Brief

This report addresses technological, marketing and applications aspects of wireless smart sensors in the WSN environment. In particular, it emphasizes the importance of the design “green” WSNs with environmentally “smart” technologies.

Rapid development of large WSNs made necessary utilization of:

  • Low-power consumption radio technologies
  • Power harvesting technologies.

The report concentrates on:

  • Smart Sensors and WSNs technologies, structures and markets
  • Self-powered Smart Sensors technologies, standards and markets
  • Low-powered radio technologies to connect Smart Sensors nodes, their specifics and markets.

The goal is to identify current trends in design and implementation of large Wireless Sensors Networks in the M2M/IoT environment.

The report is written for a wide audience of technical and managerial staff working on the design and implementation of “maintenance free” WSNs.
