Many developers are chomping at the bit to become experts at current breakthrough technologies in sensors, embedded systems, mesh networking protocols, big data analytics—all the elements of what’s popularly known as the Internet of Things (IoT). Many CxO-level executives are also interested in the IoT and how they can broaden their grasp of its potential. But if you’re a developer trying to get corporate buy-in for an IoT project, you need to understand that the pitch is somewhat different from one for a

GPS doesn’t work well inside – usually doesn’t work at all – so the hunt has long been on to find some other, almost inch-perfect way, of locating objects inside and doing clever things using the information.  There are just vast numbers of use cases for an indoor local positioning system (LPS?) in IoT, so a recent breakthrough by researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial IntelligenceLab (CSAIL) could be significant.Existing positioning systems usually rely on special beacons or on simply fixing position from listening to WiFi access points – the first expensive, the second unreliable.

Rapid advances in wearable devices and the Internet of Things (IoT) are being mirrored by breakthrough innovations in battery technologies. Traditional chemistries and forms are giving way to radical batteries that are flexible, thin, stretchy, curved, foldable, and even pin-sized.New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Implications of Mega Trends on Batteries, finds that lithium-ion and primary lithium are the chemistries of choice in sensors for IoT, wearable devices, smart cities, and storage. While the lithium-ion market is expected to reach $55 billion by 2020 and continues to see prominent adoption, advanced chemistries such as metal-air, flow batteries, and sodium sulphur are set to gain market share. Solid-state battery construction is becoming a popular choice for powering miniature devices that require high energy density.
