Wireless networks

Wireless networks are the future – not just in connection with computers or Bluetooth technology for mobile phones, but also in connection to different sensors and other technical devices. However, it is a necessity in this connection to consider the energy consumption of the network – otherwise, the expenses and environmental strain may rapidly counteract the advantages of a potential heightened level of efficiency.

At CISS, we work on developing sensors that are self-sufficient in terms of energy. As the sensors are wireless, we need to work on using alternative forms of energy – e.g. solar cell energy or energy generated by temperature differences in the sensor's surroundings. With time, it is our hope that we can develop sensors so cheap and reliable that they can be used in ordinary companies and homes and for outdoors environmental surveillance and other similar tasks.
