Like many competing technologies over the past few years, we are witnessing a battle between competing ways to accomplish the same goal: easy, low-power wireless communication from a central hub to multiple extraneous sensors.
The players in this space today are Zwave, ZigBee, and Bluetooth, each using their own bandwidth, and then low-power WiFi, which uses the common bandwidth found in WiFi signals.
While this is an exciting time for sensor companies like us, the question remains of which team of horses do we hitch our carriage to? Which technology will still be around in five years with the customer service networks necessary to support a wireless network of aquaculture sensors? We are getting a better picture, but it truly depends on who you talk to.
So we put the question to you, our loyal blog audience. Who do you think will win?
