RF Energy Harvesting for the Low Energy Internet of Things

March 1, 2016

RF energy harvesting has been under development for many years but it has so far been limited in its application and commercial deployment. One of the main limiting factors has been the ability to design an RF energy-harvesting system that can operate at a high enough efficiency to harvest ambient RF energy from the very low power densities that are present in most city, home and office locations. As a result, current commercial systems require the use of a dedicated transmitter to boost RF power density levels to provide sufficient harvested power to undertake useful work. This white paper considers recent technical advances in RF Energy Harvesting at Drayson Technologies and the potential impact on the dep

Tailoring IoT platforms to the requirements of specific use cases

whitePaper | April 13, 2021

The Internet of Things has evolved in the last 10-15 years from a long-term visionary idea to our current reality, present in more and more domains of our everyday lives. Many IoT architectures and platforms are being proposed today by various academic and industrial consortia, in domains as diverse as smart manufacturing, smart homes, smart cities or smart transport, to name just a few. These different IoT platforms have many things in common, as they all rely on connecting some smart sensor and actuator devices to each other and to the Internet, providing value-added services and applications to us, human users, either directly, or in an indirect manner. However, by closely analyzing their structure and operational focus, we can observe that these IoT architectures and platforms have also special features tailored to the requirements of different use cases.

CYBER SECURITY IN THE ERA OF INDUSTRIAL IOT

whitePaper | February 6, 2020

Industrial cyber security has been a topic of much debate over the last decade. Despite the industry’s widespread acknowledgement of its significance, cyber security in the industry continues to be an elusive subject for many. A huge gap exists in understanding the implications of cyber security; however, the subject has been greatly discussed. Interestingly, the industrial environment is currently passing through a key phase, where the idea of Internet of Things (IoT) is beginning to pervade all areas of industrial operation. This ongoing change is poised to expand the complex security needs in the factories of the future.
