Transforming Auxiliary Battery Design: Creating a Compact, Stylish, and Safe Solution for Luxury Car Brand
This small startup company received a contract to provide an auxiliary battery branded for a luxury car company. They had no experience with Lithium batteries and sought an expert electrical engineering partner to collaborate on the project.
Developing a compact auxiliary battery solution
The device must fit the size constraints of a smartphone while leaving ample space for the battery.
Creating a design that aligns with luxury brand image and customers
The design should reflect the luxury car company's aesthetic standards and meet the expectations of luxury customers.
Ensuring safety compliance for a Lithium battery
The battery solution will comply with all relevant safety regulations, ensuring consumer safety and satisfaction.
Comparison of IoT Wireless Standards
IoT is still evolving. With every iteration comes lower power consumption, longer wireless communication, and better features. New devices can take advantage of the new technology and provide better performance. Three things must be managed in wireless transmission: the power required to transmit, the data rate, and how far you’re transmitting. Choosing the right wireless standard is important.
If your device is required only to transmit data as far as 10 meters, BLE and Bluetooth are sufficient. But IoT devices for industrial and commercial purposes, such as inventory management or wearable devices for health monitoring, may require longer-range communication, such as NB-IoT or LTE-M. If a device sends a lot of data, such as a video camera, BLE cannot handle it. High power choices, such as WiFi and LTE are required.
On the other hand, cellular wireless protocols, NB-IoT and LTE-M allow your IoT devices to transmit data to distant locations at low power. The same is true for SigFox, which can transmit data as far as 50 kilometers. But unlike cellular standards with a high data rate, SigFox can only transmit up to 300 bits of data per second.
