DATE Paper Nominated for Best Paper Award18th March 2011
Our 'Holistic Energy Harvesting' project was well represented at the DATE 2011 conference, with consortium members from Southampton, Newcastle and Imperial in attendance.
Attendees from Southampton at DATE2011
From the four papers presented at the conference, one ("Accelerated simulation of tunable vibration energy harvesting systems using a linearised state-space technique") is a candidate for a best-paper award.
- Four papers from the Holistic project were accepted for publication at the conference
- The consortium shared a stand with the Energy Harvesting Network, giving attendees to the exhibition the opportunity to see videos, presentations, posters and demonstrators on the project, alongside holding discussions with consortium members.
- Dr. Paul Mitcheson co-organised a special day on "Intelligent Energy Management - Supply and Utilisation".

Online Presentation on Holistic Energy Harvesting18th June 2012
Today I presented our research on Holistic Energy Harvesting at the IET conference on Wireless Sensing Systems (WSS 2012). In particular, I was talking about our system demonstrator, namely a "Vibration-Powered Sensing System for Engine Condition Monitoring".
Condition monitoring is becoming an established technique for managing the maintenance of machinery in transport applications. Vibration energy harvesting allows wireless systems to be powered without batteries, but most traditional gene... [more]
Energy Harvesting Network's Data Repository Launched13th February 2012
The Energy Harvesting Network, coordinated by myself and Prof Steve Beeby at the University of Southampton, have launched the Network's 'Data Repository' - an online catalogue for researchers worldwide to share data on ambient energy availability - for example acceleration levels, solar irradience, or wind speeds. It is hoped that, by using a common dataset, this will encourage the comparitive evaluation of energy harvesters and fuel advances in the field.
Natuarlly, the repository will only ... [more]
