The name “Internet of Things” (IoT) can be misleading in that it does not actually refer to a specific group of things. It really isn’t a new concept either, rather a maturing technology that is making its way into the mainstream eye. Just like every other universally connected device, it operates over our regular internet with familiar applications in wearables and the smart home. So what is the real value of IoT? This white paper provides information on what the IoT has to offer now and in the future, and what defines its true value.
Researchers at the University of Washington (UW) have, for the first time, successfully demonstrated that commodity devices such as smartphones and laptops can transmit electromagnetic signals directly through the body, thereby offering a more secure alternative to over-the-air wireless technologies that are vulnerable to attacks.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) continues to support projects to promote efficient radio spectrum sharing and new wireless technologies, with its latest funding awards amounting to $12 million going to 11 principal investigators and projects.
Using reflected radio frequency (RF) waves instead of typical on-body sensors, a radio device can analyze heartbeats and breathing patterns to detect human emotion quite accurately.
Researchers at University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), have successfully devised a way to fabricate tunable, high-frequency integrated circuits and RF devices that adapt to changing environments using a novel material called barium strontium titanate (BST).
