Significantly increased battery life, in some cases up to 10 years, as well as less complex hardware that saves on costs are the major advantages of the technologies for 4G/5G connectivity used today – LTE CAT M1 and NB-IoT.
EmbeddedArt has developed a number of different IoT products for customers based on chips from Dialog, Sierra and Nordic Semiconductor, for example an intelligent tracking transmitter with GPS, Bluetooth Low Energy and motion recognition with a triaxial accelerometer. Additional functionality and more sensors for e.g. pressure, temperature and humidity can be added as needed. A lot of focus in the development work has been placed on maximizing battery life through the functions for power saving mode and sleep mode.
