Energy Harvesting 201228th March 2012
Following from the success of our conference "Energy Harvesting 2011", held in London last year, today we held this year's conference. Energy Harvesting 2012 was held in London on 28th March 2012.
Attendees at Energy Harvesting 2012
Speakers included Prof Peter Woias (IMTEK, Germany), Frank Schmidt (CTO Enocean), Prof Vittorio Ferrari (University of Brescia, Italy), Roy Freeland (Perpetuum) and Prof Eric Yeatman (Imperial College, London).
The event provided a platform for disseminating energy-harvesting advances in the UK, and contained presentations from well-respected speakers from academia and industry, demonstrations from companies, and posters from postgraduate students. Around 100 participants attended from both industry and academia.
The event was very well received by all that attended, and we look forward to Energy Harvesting 2013!

Two Papers Accepted for Publication in IEEE Transactions26th September 2011
We have recently had two papers related to our work on Energy Harvesting electronics accepted for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems. Both publications are a result of the EPSRC project on 'Holistic Energy Harvesting'.
The first paper, 'Accurate Supercapacitor Modeling for Energy-Harvesting Wireless Sensor Nodes' investigates supercapacitors, often used in energy-harvesting wireless sensor nodes (EH-WSNs) to store harvested energy. Until now, research into the use of... [more]
I Begin to trial DejaView!17th July 2012
Today I got my own DejaView device to start to wear, play with, improve (and fix the bugs)! While we've had working devices and a working system for many months now, up until now any devices that we have had have been used by the rest of the research team and our clinicial collaborators in London.
Some of the photos from my first two days of wearing DejaView can be seen in the image:
The top photo was captured while myself and Paul Lewis were interviewed and filmed by a team from Sweden ma... [more]
