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 suceed if it is adopted by the community and used; hence, we invite everyone working in energy harvesting to contribute data to it, and/or use the data that is available. To kick-start the process, we have made available a selection of the data that we have obtained through our research on the 'Holistic Energy Harvesting' project - this includes vibration data from cars, household appliances, machinary and structures.

See our press release on the data repository on EETimes.

Davide presenting his research
Today, Teng, Sei Ping, Luis and Davide all presented their research as part of the ESS group's student seminar series. Teng presented his research on interoperability in wireless sensor networks, Sei Ping on intelligent adaptive street lighting, Luis on machine learning for adaptive power management, and Davide on energy-aware algorithms for wireless sensor networks. All received a lot of useful questions and feedback on their research, and it was a useful exercise in finding out more abou... [more]

D4 2012 (SAILORS): Football theme in an Olympic year
11th June 2012
One of the football-playing robots
Second-year Electronics students in ECS had a fittingly Olympic theme for this year's D4 design exercise, traditionally a very competitive culmination to practical work in the first two years. Student teams were set the challenge of building an intelligent robot capable of playing football without human input to take part in the fictional 'Robot Olympics'. The students had only three weeks to design, build, test, and demonstrate a complete electronic system. Pressure on the students was intense ... [more]
