Estimating Battery Life in Changing Conditions
Estimating battery life for IoT devices has always been challenging. You need seamless ranging, fast bandwidth, and event-based power analysis just to get started. But real-world IoT devices don’t always behave in predictable ways. They have to adapt and respond to environmental changes, RF interference, and demands from other devices, especially in contexts such as mesh networks and load-balancing edge computing architectures. How can you possibly begin to estimate battery life in such contexts?
