How to pick the right battery for IoT devices
The art of profiling and emulating batteries, and calculating IoT battery life
In the world of IoT and battery-powered devices, understanding how your device consumes energy is not just beneficial, it’s essential. Battery performance dictates the efficiency and effectiveness of your device, ultimately impacting its real-world functionality. However, to gain this understanding, we must dig deeper into the device’s interactions with its power source: the battery.
Welcome to this comprehensive webinar where we will not only measure a device’s energy consumption but also use this data to profile the battery based on the device’s usage.
But, we won’t stop there. This information will then be used to emulate the battery, creating a digital twin that accurately reflects the physical battery’s characteristics and behaviour under various conditions.
Finally, we’ll then delve into the tricky realm of battery life estimation. Using our profiling and emulation, we aim to offer accurate, data-driven predictions for your IoT device’s battery life.
Join us in this comprehensive, hands-on exploration of energy consumption, battery profiling, emulation, and life estimation, as we uncover the intricate relationship between a device and its battery, and learn how to optimize it for the best performance.
