Recent days the Internet of Things has become a new revolution of the Internet.The objects make themselves recognizable and they get intelligence,thanks to the fact that they can communicate information about themselves and they can access information that has been aggregated by other things.
Five major ways the Internet of things ::
It is seen that during the day,when the sun shines down,it is a relatively passive energy source that largely remains untapped.A couple years ago Peregrine Semi conductor started working with Kansas State University researchers on an energy-harvesting radio that gains power from a board made of solar cells taken from low-end calculators.The rest of the setup includes a low-power integrated chip originally developed for a NASA Mars project—to store the data,and a radio to transmit the data every five seconds.Another more recent innovation is researchers developing organic and polymer-based solar cells that are thinner than spider silk that MIT Tech Review says“can be bent and crumpled and still produce power.” When you think about how to power a distributed network of environmental sensors-the kind we will want to have in order to connect the entirety of our physical world to the Internet of Things-the answer is obviously the solar power.
2.Flipping a light switch:-
A lots of manufacturer like GreenPeak,exide those sell battery-free wireless chips and network hardware that can create wireless sensor networks for industrial and commercial buildings that do not use batteries,but harvest energy when it is available.GreenPeak has been developing tech for’Self Powered Switches,’ which are essentially a light that can run off of the power generated by switching a light switch on and off.
People powered motion sparks the imagination of jogging powering iPods and footsteps providing juice for iPhone.Remember this energy collecting knee brace.
A lots of firm like UK based Perpetuum makes a device that capture vibrations and converts them into energy.Widely accepted standards price could bring that low cost,and developers could incorporate the technology more into the residential environment.
5.Changes in temperature:-
The recent report of MIT Tech Review writes says’devices could be powered just by differences in temperature between the body(or another warm object)and the surrounding air, eliminating or reducing the need for a battery.’
