Energy Harvesting

This paper discusses the design and use of a cellular IoT application circuit that is powered from harvested energy. The application combines GNSS-based positioning as well as short range (Bluetooth) and cellular (NB-IoT and LTE-M) communication. The solution developed uses the u-blox SARA-R4 (LTE Cat M1 / NB1) or the u-blox SARA-N2 (LTE Cat NB1) cellular modules, the u-blox NINA-B1 Bluetooth low energy module and applications processor, and the u-blox ZOE-M8 GNSS receiver. In addition there are several sensors for ambient light, UV, motion, temperature, humidity, magnetic detection and air pressure. A video of the vibration harvester example is available on YouTube. While energy harvesting is the focus of this paper, all the techniques described apply just as well to any ultra-low power system operating from a primary battery.

Short range low power wireless devices and Internet of Things (IoT)

This paper discusses the topic of the “last 100 meters connectivity” in systems where small devices (such as various sensors) are connected to services on a wide-area Internet network. Subject matters covered are the requirements on the “last 100 meters connectivity” vision as well as what wireless technologies would be suitable for future Internet of Things (IoT) use cases. This paper also presents the background to why u-blox envisions the “last 100 meters connectivity” is an important factor in the area of IoT and u-blox’ view on the impact of IoT in general.
