Ultra-Low Power IoT Booking Device
Description of the thesis proposal:
In this project, an IoT solution for a room booking service will be implemented and evaluated.
Here, we propose to investigate the concept of a dedicated device to simplify the monitoring and the on-the-spot room bookings for the conference rooms in an office environment.
The device should provide an interface to allow users to monitor and conveniently schedule bookings. By wireless communication and self-sufficient power supply, the device is easily deployable and require low maintenance.
In order to be self-sufficient in an office environment, we suggest the booking device needs to be designed as ultra-low harvesting circuit that could be sustainable with solar panels.
We suggest that the device wakes up in regular intervals throughout the day and utilizes low power protocol to exchange messages with a base station hub that manages resources and API requests to the calendar service provider to minimize the battery usage.
The Battery levels is monitored in the wake-up routine and used to dynamically estimate and adjust the wake-up interval according to light conditions.
Weather data could also be relayed to the device from the hub station to help estimate light levels.
