Wireless Sensor Networks Improve Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality (IAQ) is very important to the tenants of a building because breathing polluted air can cause respiratory issues and other health problems. Dust particles, mold, and bacteria can thrive in a room with temperature and humidity that facilitate their growth. Air can also be polluted with volatile organic compounds and carbon monoxide. Wireless sensor networks (WSN) can monitor indoor air quality for gases, particles, humidity, and temperature. These all can affect tenant comfort and health. Through a simple smartphone app or desktop computer, the WSN nodes can communicate data through Wi-Fi. This is one of the latest Internet of things (IoT) developments.

Manufacturing RAIN RFID Tags for Smart Vehicles

RAIN RFID is the commercial name for the ultra-high frequency (UHF) technology behind the EPC Global Gen2 V2/ ISO18000-6 standards. It’s a passive wireless technology, meaning it doesn’t need a battery. It can be embedded in rigid tags, paper stickers, and as part of circuit boards. It can then be read very accurately at a distance of several meters, without a line of sight, and in bulk.

Light Fidelity (LiFi): The Future of Data Communication

Light and the Internet are two great enablers of our times and they can combine for an emerging technology called light fidelity (Li-Fi), the future of wireless communication. Li-Fi is 100 times faster than Wi-Fi and independent of congested radio frequencies and inferences from electromagnetic waves. These light waves are capable of transmitting 10 times the speed of current-day data communication by illumination up to 10 to 20 Gbps. However, these light beams won't be able to pass through walls and don’t have long range (5 to 10 mts) access, but with the aid of sensors distances could be increased and can overcome this obstacle.

Latest IoT Innovations in Home and Building Thermostats

Today’s smart thermostats are a networked component of the internet of things (IoT). Thanks to Wi-Fi connectivity, temperatures can be conveniently adjusted via a downloaded smartphone app from another room or a different zip code.

Miniaturized RFID Tags Thwart Product Counterfeiting

We’ve already looked at the emerging applications of RFID technology which effectively combat the endless flow of international product counterfeiting, from foreign-made knockoffs of trusted luxury brand merchandise to the potentially lethal importation of counterfeit prescription drugs. We’d like to delve deeper into the technical aspects of how the advanced miniaturization of RFID tags themselves makes them an extremely valuable tool for delivering tamper-proof product authentication and consumer peace-of-mind.
