Researchers determine ways to connect IoT sensors via ambient waves
Who needs radio communications? IoT sensors could connect via ambient waves getting rid of the radios altogether, according to a new study from Disney Research.
A team of researchers, led by associate lab director and leader of Disney Research's Wireless Systems group Alanson Sample, devised an ultra-low-power system of sensors that transmit data to a central receiver by reflecting the ambient radio waves from commercial broadcasting systems that already bathe most office environments.
The idea is to...
