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".

Stuart's Internship on Energy Harvesting30th September 2011
This summer, one of our undergraduate electronic engineering students, Stuart Barrow, worked with me for three months on the pioneering EPSRC-funded project on "Next Generation Energy-Harvesting Electronics - A Holistic Approach". Stuart developed an ultra low-power system that analyses vibrations and transmits them wirelessly. The photo shows Stuart testing his system on a car engine - the hardware on the engine is detecting vibrations, processing them, and transmitting them wirelessly to a lap... [more]
Sam presents at INSS 201213th June 2012
Today, Sam presented his paper at the EnHaNSS (Algorithms and Concepts for Networked Sensing Systems Powered by Energy Harvesters) Workshop at INSS (International Conference on Networked Sensing Systems) 2012. Sam's paper was titled Design of a linearized magnetic spring for body-worn inertial energy harvesters, and was well received by the audience.
The conference banquet included a competition to see who could create the best cocktail. Congratulations for to Sam for being the undisputed win... [more]
