Why the Internet of Things may never happen (Part 2) | Mike Elgan | ComputerWorld.com

Why the Internet of Things may never happen (Part 2) | Mike Elgan | ComputerWorld.com | Internet of things | Scoop.it

The Internet of Things is great -- if, that is, you like the Internet and you also own some things.

Until this week, the Internet of Things vision had a fatal flaw. But now, it has two fatal flaws.

To avoid hyperbole, let me be clear that these flaws are fatal to the vision, but not necessarily to your things that are connected to the Internet.

Hoo-boy. Three paragraphs in, and I've already got a lot of explaining to do. But stick with me. The payoff is worth it.

I'm going to describe the vision, then the flaws. And then I'm going to tell you what I think is actually going to happen.

Philippe Andre's insight:

This article describes two important problems of the Internet of Things: the lack of international standards and security. Two major problems to deal with. Maybe because I'm an optimist, I would be less pessimistic than the author of the article. Regarding standards, IEEE seizes the question. One might think that this body may happen to publish a standard accepted by all. But it will be long and the universal adoption of standard also long (just think about the interoperability of our electrical outlets in the world). About safety, I am also quite pessimistic. The safety of a single server behind a firewall, despite the treasures of deployed technologies is still threatened, then what about tomorrow and dispersed devices everywhere connected to the Internet?

WiFi Backscatter: How to enable the Internet of Things without batteries

WiFi Backscatter: How to enable the Internet of Things without batteries | Internet of things | Scoop.it

University of Washington engineers have designed a clever new communication system called Wi-Fi backscatter that uses ambient radio frequency signals as a power source for battery-free devices (such as temperature sensors or wearable technology) and also reuses the existing Wi-Fi infrastructure to provide Internet connectivity for these devices.

 

“If Internet of Things devices are going to take off, we must provide connectivity to the potentially billions of battery-free devices that will be embedded in everyday objects,” said Shyam Gollakota, a UW assistant professor of computer science and engineering.

 

“We now have the ability to enable Wi-Fi connectivity for devices while consuming orders of magnitude less power than what Wi-Fi typically requires.”


To supply power to the devices, the system uses an “ambient backscatter” scheme previously developed by the UW group, which allows two devices to communicate with each other by harvesting ambient radio, TV, and cellular transmissions, as KurzweilAI described last year.

 

So the new research takes that a step further by also connecting each individual device to the Internet. But but even low-power Wi-Fi consumes 1000 to 10,000 times more power than can be harvested in these wireless signals. Instead, the new system uses an ultra-low-power “tag” with an antenna and circuitry that can talk to Wi-Fi-enabled laptops or smartphones while consuming negligible power (less than 10 microwatts).


These tags work by essentially “looking” for Wi-Fi signals moving between the router and a laptop or smartphone. The tags encode data in real time by either reflecting or not reflecting the Wi-Fi router’s signals, thus slightly changing the wireless signal. Wi-Fi-enabled devices like laptops and smartphones would detect these minute changes (by analyzing changes in reflected signals) and receive data from the tag.


So far, the UW’s Wi-Fi backscatter tag has communicated with a Wi-Fi device at rates of 1 kilobit per second with about 2 meters between the devices. The researchers plan to extend the range to about 20 meters and have files patents on the technology.

 

The “Internet of Things” would extend connectivity to perhaps billions of devices. Battery-free sensors could be embedded in everyday objects to help monitor and track everything from the structural safety of bridges to the health of your heart. For example, your smart watch could upload your workout data onto a Google spreadsheet.

 

Or sensors embedded around your home could track minute-by-minute temperature changes and send that information to your thermostat to help conserve energy.

 

The researchers will publish their results at the Association for Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on Data Communication‘s annual conference this month in Chicago. The team also plans to start a company based on the technology.

Philippe Andre's insight:
 A very clever use of wifi waves to communicate without devices energy (or almost free energy). This way, if confirmed, opens up possibilities for M2M connection in economic conditions. If ever the technology allowed the same thing using the waves of mobile networks, this still open more opportunities for rapid expansion of M2M in particular environments (without WiFi but with very good mobile networks as in some African countries, for example )
