Abstract

In the near future, many sensors and terminals will be connected to the public network to provide various convenient IoT/M2M services. In order to connect many sensors to the network efficiently, wireless communication systems in the 920MHz band are seen as attractive solutions. We are focusing on the 920MHz band to research and develop highcapacity protocols that can accommodate many terminals, and low power consumption technologies for battery-driven terminals. In this paper, we describe the following three concrete wireless systems that use our proposals. (1) A physical distribution pallet management system that can handle thousands of pallet-embedded sensors and a wireless module with a battery lifetime of about ten years. (2) Water leakage monitoring system for underground pipes by using sensors and a wireless module in each valve box. (3) A wide-area and high-capacity radio relay system for smart metering services like the reading of gas meters. The radio relay system can accommodate various sensors and terminals and has large potential for providing various IoT/M2M services in conjunction with smart metering services.
