Major Event (Highlighted Event)
Educational talk (demo) about sustainable technology (creation of wireless devices without need for batteries)
Due to the ever-increasing usage of wireless communication systems and the uptake of Internet of Things (IoT), the carbon footprint caused by communication keeps increasing. Battery disposal causes harm to the environment, and, as the number of IoT grows, replacing the battery of each IoT device on earth is not viable anymore.
We will give an educational talk about the need of creating sustainable technology, and it will come accompanied by a demo, where we will show an IoT device that operates without batteries and it can communicate its data to Internet. Cutting-edge LiFi and RF backscatter technologies are merged for sustainable communication.
Time: 10:00 am-11.00 am ; 16.00pm -17.00 pm
