A Power Saving Hybrid Technique for IoT

Sadeq Al-Hamouz

Abstract


Most IoT applications usually contain a battery inside, which provides good mobility for the system, but also limits lifetime of the application in general. A lot of work concentrated on power saving algorithms for software, and hardware solutions to provide better results. The proposed solution uses a hybrid technique that enables the IoT system to save power by installing a secondary low current microcontroller to put sensorsand other devices in sleep mode, and depending on the IoT device’s application, it will be awakened by a needed trigger that is tuned according to the application (such as certain sensors readings, or time based trigger). This will provide high system flexibility.
