Battery Powered Device Integration with CoAP

CoAP can be used to connect nearly any IOT sensor or device to the network using our family of Milli NIC communication module developer kits. You can connect a battery powered (or even a continuously powered) device with this protocol.

Just a few examples of the many use cases include:

  • Pallet tracking
  • Environmental sensors (temperature, humidity, air quality, ...)
  • Noise level sensors
  • Motion sensors
  • Gas detection
  • Soil content sensors in agricultural applications
  • Street light control
  • Distribution line sensors
  • and numerous others
