Oppo announces the end of the battery. This is Zero-Power Communication

Oppo announces the end of the battery. This is Zero-Power Communication

In the near future, IoT devices will be able to draw energy via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and cellular signal, Oppo predicts. The company presented a solution to help achieve this vision – Zero-Power Communication.

In the near future, IoT devices will be able to draw energy via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and cellular signal, Oppo predicts. The company presented a solution to help achieve this vision – Zero-Power Communication.

The implementation of the Zero-Power Communication solution will take Oppo another 3-5 years. This technology will be at the center of the company’s interest in the transition from 5G to 6G connectivity. What should you expect after this time?

As Oppo explains, thanks to the fact that IoT devices will be able to draw energy via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and the cellular signal, their size will decrease, durability and efficiency will increase, and the price will drop significantly. Such equipment can also reduce the amount of waste and pollution that electronic devices currently generate.

The Chinese manufacturer explains that the Zero-Power Communication technology will eliminate batteries from devices and obtain energy from radio waves from the environment. According to Oppo, such properties will work well in commercial use, including in warehouses, logistics, agriculture, IoT devices, smart homes and other modern consumer technical solutions.

An important element of this solution is to be special electronic stickers (tags) used to locate devices. The tags will not need to be replaced or recharged. Zero-Power Communication stickers can be used to track discharged devices, even over long distances. They can even be used in such unusual situations as long-range locators for endangered birds.

 

Oppo points out that the passive RFID communication technology already used is fraught with many problems, such as: short range, low efficiency or very small capacity. Unlike RFID, devices equipped with Zero-Power technology can collect energy from radio signals from the environment, e.g. TV and radio (FM) transmitters, cellular network transmitters or WiFi access points (AP).
