Abstract

In order to realize smart factory which is appeared in the concepts of Society 5.0 and Industry 4.0, wireless Internet of Things (IoT) becomes a key technology. Inside of the factory, there are heavy DATA traffics exist between moving/movable machine tools/robots/automated guided vehicle (AGV) with wireless access point (AP) and high speed moving/rotating objects/materials with wireless sensor node (SN). Currently, wireless systems used for wireless IoT are limited such as wireless-LAN/Bluetooth/RFID. Since these system's frequency bands are limited and narrow, the interference between these systems becomes severe. In this paper, we propose a simplified beam forming wireless IoT communication using novel Wi-Fi backscatter system to notify the existence of SN who wants to send its DATA to AP. For Wi-Fi AP with beamforming function, knowing the numbers of existing SNs in each beam area will be a help for efficient beam control. This paper describes the Wi-Fi backscatter system in which the SNs backscatter the Wi-Fi signal transmitted from the AP then the AP detects the backscatter signals from SNs and know the existing SN's number in its beam area. Since this backscatter system uses Wi-Fi modulated signal, the separation of SNs' backscatter signals from AP's transmitting Wi-Fi signal becomes complicated. This paper also describes the transceiver architecture of AP which reduces the complexity of signal processing and improves the dynamic range of reception.
