Compressed industrial energy savings
6 April, 2023
While the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will be critical in making production more efficient and sustainable across various industries, it currently uses Wi-Fi for its connectivity (Standard IEEE 802.11), and Wi-Fi can consume a lot of energy because of the size of the data packets sent back and forth and the maximum transmission unit (MTU). Researchers in Brazil have investigated data compression as a possible solution to this problem. Writing in the International Journal of Embedded Systems, the team describes two new methods they suggest can reduce significantly the amount of data sent by IIoT devices. Their methods use data compression to minimize the size of transmitted packets and the MTU. The first method involves using a customized binary Huffman-tree. This approach analyses the frequency of characters in a data stream and assigns a variable-length code to each in a way that minimizes the total number of bits required to represent the data. The second method utilizes a Lempel-Ziv-Welch algorithm with a flexible dictionary. This lossless data compression algorithm works by identifying repeated patterns or sequences of data in a given data stream and replaces those sequences with shorter codes [...]More details...
