Energy harvesting, wireless sensor networks & opportunities for industrial applications
Design How-To 2/27/2012 7 comments
With the will to increase the number of sensors around us and to respect several economic and environmental constraints, researchers and R&D engineers are looking for new green and unlimited energy sources that will allow to remove batteries or wires and to develop autonomous wireless sensor networks with theoretical unlimited lifetimes. These new sources are based on ambient energy.
