Why the internet of things should be designed with efficiency in mind


Augmented reality should not drive us further toward climate change.

If you imagine 50 billion connected devices all consuming a few milliwatts of power, it adds up. With that in mind, we brought Oleg Logvinov, director, market development at ST Microelectronics and who currently serves on the IEEE Standards Association Corporate Advisory Group, on this week’s podcast to discuss strategies from the silicon up for making the internet of things more energy efficient.

Before Logvinov discusses both technologies and standards for cutting electricity usage and makes the case that even wired devices should consume less, Kevin Tofel and I talk about the previous week’s news including the August lock, the future of Bluetooth as a standard in the connected home, and Qualcomm’s planned buy of CSR. Stay tuned.

And don’t forget about Structure Connect, which kicks off later today in San Francisco.

Host: Stacey Higginbotham
Guests: Kevin Tofel and Rafi Haladjian, CEO of Sen.se.
