Wireless data transmission systems are being increasingly deployed in industrial and home automation applications. These robust systems are used to transmit sensor data and control information across network infrastructures. In the age of the Internet of Things (IoT), people and things will be intelligently connected to one another, leading to innovations in business and Industry 4.0.
MIOTY, a miniaturized IoT system developed by Fraunhofer IIS, sets new standards in the field of wireless data transmission when it comes to cost efficiency, transmission range, transmission security and battery life.
This solution relies on an asymmetrical transmission method that uses scores of simple sensor nodes and a complex receiver.
A single receiver can handle as many as one million simultaneous, robust transmissions. MIOTY boasts a transmission range of up to 15 kilometers and the energy-efficient operation results in a battery life of up to 20 years.
