Several underlying challenges and opportunities are driving tech trends for wireless communications. Wireless technology can play a significant role in enterprises over the next five years.
FREMONT, CA: Wireless technology tends to bring a significant impact on the development of evolving products and applications, including robots, drones, self-driving vehicles, and next-generation medical devices. It also means that product designers should need to improve their skills over the next five years in new technology areas. Here are 4 trends that would change the face of wireless technology.
Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) wireless
V2X wireless systems will help to make the conventional and self-driving cars to communicate with each other and with the road infrastructure. Along with this, it helps in exchanging information and status data, V2X can deliver a wide range of services, comprising of safety capabilities, navigation support, driver information, and fuel-saving.
Low-power wide-area (LPWA) networks
LPWA networks deliver the power-efficient and low-bandwidth connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT) applications for long battery life. Current LPWA technologies comprise of Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), Long Term Evolution for Machines (LTE-M), LoRa, and Sigfox and typically support huge platforms like the countries and cities. The low-cost modules are utilized by IoT manufacturers to enable small, low-cost, battery-powered devices like the sensors and trackers.
Enhanced wireless location tracking
High-precision tracking to about 1-m accuracy will help the IEEE 802.11az standard and is expected to be a quality of future 5G standards. Location sensing combined with the core wireless network could enable different benefits like the lower hardware cost and power consumption, as well as enhanced performance and precision compared to other systems like the fingerprinting and inertial navigation.
Software-defined radio (SDR)
SDR shifts most of the signal processing in a radio system away from chips and into the software so that the radio can support more frequencies and protocols. Even though the technology has been available for many years, it has never taken off because it's very expensive than the dedicated chips.
