An interesting step forward

The quest to power printed ''semi-active'' TAGS date dates quite a few years. I remember interesting works from IMEC, Georgia Tech and an handful of French Institutions, just to deal with, sice 2011 at least. The limit of 10 meters is because you can't make the source more powerful without infringing safety regulations (EIRP) laws. Foir longer distances, you have to bridge the HUB's. I guess it is what PARC wants to do later.

The work from PARC is very welcome in the sense that they seem now addressing networking and pricing issue and seriously path a commercial way for this application. Smart building is a good starting point, hospitals and large-surface retailing will benefit from this solutions as well.
