Solar irradiation is the most optimum for energy harvesting that airliners can use but a system has to be capable of using multiple sources including vibration energy harvesting and temperature differentials the article is referring to. There are solutions available today but much improvements are needed.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
