oT Weekly #1 - Batteries, Anatomy and Balloons
After the weekly safety overview two days in the past, I wish to go on with the IoT Weekly Review. Every week I’ll summarize probably the most fascinating information, articles, weblog posts, white-paper and so on. with deal with Iot and all of the applied sciences round IoT like: vitality, connectivity, cloud options, system architectures, fails, wins, harvesting, experiments and many extra.
Tesla researchers doubled lifetime of batteries
Unfortunately not probably the most precise information and from the primary perspective not focusing on the IoT area. But solely actually first perspective. Du to the truth that a lot of the IoT gadgets in he subject are battery powered the information sounds extra and extra fascinating.
On the worldwide battery seminar at march 2017 Jeff Dahn, a battery researcher from Tesla, introduced that the analysis and improvement division have discovered a method learn how to double the battery life. Besides this very fascinating information, they talked about additionally that they’ve developed a battery testing machine which they plan to commercialize. This machine can carry out the chemistry assessments on batteries extra correct and extra detailed.
For those that are fascinated by particulars, there’s a youtube video describing the main points.
The anatomy of an IoT resolution
Depending on what your organization is specializing in within the IoT area you in all probability already had the issue that speaking to others from the identical Domain however an different focus is usually a very onerous job. The supply of the issue is commonly that each events use precisely the identical wording, whereas from the identical area, however speaking in regards to the completely various things.
Hans de Visser, has written a pleasant article the place he construction the IoT Domain itself in layers but in addition describe the content material of every of the layers intimately.
LoRa within the Air
Unfortunately some pictures and a webpage with out lot of data.
Nr. 1 Tweet from laurensslats
laurenSlats tweeted, or retweeted a map with a reference to LoRa Alliance and the heading “333,7km! With a helium balloon at 22,6km height (using SF7). Pretty impressive”.
Having the data above one can derive following state of affairs. Some guys hooked up a LoRa node to a helium balloo with some logging firmware put in on the node and let the balloon fly, gathering details about the accessible LoRa community distribution on it is method however displaying additionally the probabilities of the LoRa applied sciences -> SF7 from 22,6 km LOS is actually very spectacular.
Below you may see the results of the journey. At the tip 137 Gateways have been found a lot of the within the Netherlands.
Nr 2. Live tracing in Czech Republic
Similar strategy to the one above had additionally some guys in Czech Republic. the truth that the route of the balloon could be traced reside on-line let assume me that the node is provided additionally with a mobile module. On the web site under you may examine some earlier routes but in addition see the ballons route reside. Beside the Information about LoRa Networks, the Czech guys collected additionally some environmental informations in addition to Informations in regards to the place of mobile stations.
