Air-quality sensor with 10-years lifespan

University essay from Högskolan Kristianstad/Fakulteten för naturvetenskap; Högskolan Kristianstad/Fakulteten för naturvetenskap

Abstract: Sensors with very low power consumption are required so that they can last a long time without the need to replace the batteries very often. Low power sensors can save significant cost and time incurred in battery replacement, especially in establishments and organizations that span over several buildings, floors and rooms. In this thesis, we investigate the use of the low-power wireless protocol Z-wave for sensors solutions that can last for approximately 10 years. An algorithm was created and we concluded that 10 years on a 480 mAh battery is not possible and the expected years need to be lowered or we need to increase the battery capacity.
