Passive Wi-Fi could make for a more energy efficient Internet of Things, University of Washington researchers say

The biggest downside of Wi-Fi for most users might be that it can really drain your smartphone or tablet battery, but a research team at the University of Washington has come up with a way to make using the nearly ubiquitous wireless technology in a less taxing way.

They have demonstrated a technique for using 10,000 times less power than typical Wi-Fi (well, at up to 11Mbps anyway) and next month will present a paper titled “Passive Wi-Fi: Bringing Low Power to Wi-Fi Transmissions” at the USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design in Santa Clara.
