PANEL: Wireless Technologies for Indoor Lighting Control and Lighting-based IoT: What is Needed and What is Possible
Wednesday, March 01, 2017: 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
This panel begins with a discussion by Michael Poplawski (PNNL) of the kinds of applications, features, and technical requirements anticipated by those considering the use of Lighting as a foundation for the Internet of Things in commercial, industrial, and institutional spaces. Each speaker to follow will provide a perspective on one or more of the wireless technology solutions being promoted in the marketplace. This session will be information rich, and will include demonstrations of multiple technology approaches. Users will learn about IoT applications, and the inherent capabilities and limitations of different wireless technologies, including Bluetooth, Zigbee, Wifi, Thread, 802.11ah, cellular, and low-frequency proprietary solutions. They will see clear displays of how those capabilities match up the the requirements laid down by Mr. Poplawski. One goal of this session is to stimulate conversation, debate, and new information from the audience.
