If you imagine 50 billion connected devices all consuming a few milliwatts of power, it adds up. With that in mind, we brought Oleg Logvinov, director, market development at ST Microelectronics and who currently serves on the IEEE Standards Association Corporate Advisory Group, on this week’s podcast to discuss strategies from the silicon up for making the internet of things more energy efficient.
Before Logvinov discusses both technologies and standards for cutting electricity usage and makes the case that even wired devices should consume less, Kevin Tofel and I talk about the previous week’s news including the August lock, the future of Bluetooth as a standard in the connected home, and Qualcomm’s planned buy of CSR. Stay tuned.
And don’t forget about Structure Connect, which kicks off later today in San Francisco.
Host: Stacey Higginbotham
Guests: Kevin Tofel and Rafi Haladjian, CEO of Sen.se.
- The August smart lock versus the Kevo lock
- Qualcomm’s big bet on bluetooth and BLE’s chance in the home
- Thoughts on thread and mesh networks for the home
- Why energy efficiency matters for IoT
- Designing software that can pick the most efficient path to the cloud
