IEEE Releases Report on Wake-Up Radio Technology Aimed at Increasing Battery Life for Wireless Devices

first_img An overview of IEEE 802.11ba Wake-Up Radio Near-and long-term use cases Market forecasts A comparison of IEEE Wake-Up Radio to other technologies A look at potential future developments Click here to learn more. IEEE has released the IEEE Technology Report on Wake-Up Radio. Wake-Up Radio is a breakthrough technology from the IEEE 802.11ba Standards Task Group that significantly extends the battery life of devices and sensors, particularly those that are part of the Internet of Things (IoT). With the projected growth of IoT devices exceeding 20 billion by 2020, Wake-Up Radio will greatly reduce the need for frequent recharging or replacement of batteries while still maintaining optimum device performance.Energy conservation is a critical requirement for the billions of future networked devices exclusively dependent on battery power with a target operational lifetime in excess of five years. These devices are expected to make up a substantial fraction of the Internet of Things market. IEEE P802.11ba – Wake Up Radio is a key enabling energy conserving technology for the markets they will serve, and this insightful report has been crafted to help stakeholders better understand the potential of the technology and market.From smart homes and smart warehouses, to logistics and transport, to wearable health-monitoring devices and more, achieving low-power, low-latency objectives are essential for organizations designing or using IoT devices. Wake-Up Radio, running on the common standard IEEE 802.11, offers solutions to overcome design challenges, and to meet the unique requirements for low-power and low-latency in a world of ubiquitous IoT device deployments.The IEEE Wake-Up Radio is an add-on to existing IEEE 802.11 radios that substantially improve power-saving performance of IEEE 802, removing the need to compromise between power savings and latency. This makes the technology suitable for a new class of battery-powered devices that will drive innovation and exciting new applications in the market.The IEEE Technology Report on Wake-Up Radio provides:last_img read more

My NHL Home Uniform Rankings

Not actually censored. f— you 2 days agoRanking Ottawa last eh? I wouldn’t expect anything less from a pathetic scabs fan. GO to hell.LOLLLLLListen, I hate the Habs as much as the rest of my Ottawa brethren, but to sit here and pretend that the home & away uniforms of my beloved Sens are anything other than utter garbage is delusional at best.’Tis a fine list and I agree with about 97% of it. I may have put Phoenix a tad higher on the list, but other than that: good work!The Sens throwbacks are some of my favorites in the league. If they made a set based on those, or anything other than what they’re wearing, they move up considerably. They’ve got so many possibilities. The bottom 2, Pittsburgh and Ottawa, could really be interchangeable. Could be 29a and 29b. Weird that two teams with some of the nicest 3rds in the league have the worst primary sets in the league.Phoenix/Arizona, to me, really just needs a hem stripe to become good. It just looks unfinished and practice jersey-ish like San Jose. They’re sort of in that high teens-low twenties bubble where any of 18-24 could be interchangeable. How are the Hurricanes not at #30 and have a grade a C-? Worst uni in the league imo. 1,710 posts Posted June 1, 2015 Forums Home 5,926 posts Share on other sites Recommended Posts 21 tigerslionspistonshabs 1,585 Posted May 31, 2015 Share this post Location:DETROIT Share on other sites Haunted account Share on other sites Because boredom has taken over.

ICBC launches free windshield repair program March 27th

first_imgAccording to the program, windshield repairs must be completed by an ICBC Glass Express facility. A maximum of three damaged areas can be repaired on an individual claim basis, though there’s no limit to the number of windshield repair claims per policy period.Customers can visit icbc.com for more information about the claims process and for a list of ICBC Glass Express facilities in their area. VANCOUVER, B.C. – After previously announcing that they would begin to offer a new rock chip repair program, ICBC announced today that the program will start next Monday, March 27th.The program is available for motorists that purchase ICBC’s optional comprehensive coverage for their private vehicles. Those with the coverage will be able to get a chipped windshield repaired for free, as long as an ICBC Glass Express facility determines it’s safe and appropriate to do so. In the past few weeks, ICBC has consulted with its Glass Express suppliers, along with the Automotive Retailers Association and the New Car Dealers Association of B.C., who have provided feedback and support as the details of the program have been developed.Now, eligible customers will be able to take their vehicle directly to an ICBC-accredited Glass Express facility for windshield repairs without calling ICBC first or paying a deductible. Windshield repairs will also have no impact on a customer’s claims history or future deductible.- Advertisement -“This is a great program – it will benefit more than 2.5 million British Columbians across the province and, at the same time, help reduce ICBC’s material damage costs by approximately $8 million per year,” said Todd Stone, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure.In recent years, ICBC would replace a damaged windshield rather than repair it because repaired windshields would often still need to be replaced a short time later. Today, repairs last substantially longer due to improvements in the technology and materials used.“This is an important new program because it will have enormous benefits for our customers, our valued business partners, as well as the environment,” said Mark Blucher, ICBC’s president and CEO. “This is another step we’re taking to help reduce the growing pressure on insurance rates and we’re committed to continuing to explore other initiatives which can do the same.”Advertisementlast_img read more
