Bring-Up: Wiliot IoT Pixels on Cardboard Samples
First, place the cardboard samples vertically, "face to face" with your bridge device.
Wiliot IoT Pixels are optimized for corrugated materials and plastics, so we have put your IoT Pixels on a cardboard sample. More information regarding how materials affect IoT Pixel performance can be found on the Material Performance page.
The orientation and positioning of Wiliot’s IoT Pixels also have an impact on its energy harvesting performance. Wiliot’s IoT Pixels are linearly polarized, making them optimized for harvesting in a single linear direction with more range. Visit the Orientation Guide for more information.
The Single-Band IoT Pixels are optimized for operation with the Single-Band Bridge (smaller USB device), whereas the Dual-Band IoT Pixels work best with the Dual-Band Bridge (larger round device). When setting up the Cardboard Samples, make sure you are using the right bridge with the right IoT Pixels for optimal performance.
Similar to the steps taken when setting up the coffee cup, users will open the Wiliot App to verify that the IoT Pixels are appearing and that the IDs match those on the IoT Pixels. Once confirmed, users can push the IoT Pixels farther away from the Bridge device and begin to experiment, observing the IoT Pixel data within the Wiliot App.
