Our project on 'Holistic Energy Harvseting' has now come to an end, and we held a workshop at Imperial College London on 11 February 2013 to showcase the project's demonstrators and research findings.

Attendees found out about the project's objectives and achievements, following by an interactive showcase of the project's demonstrators and research outputs. A particular emphasis of the event was giving attendees the opportunity to interact with the project's researchers and academics. In the afternoon, a series of technical seminars discussed various areas of the research in more depth. The day was designed to give attendees the flexibility to either drop-in for the project overview and demonstrations, or to come for the full day and get the full holistic experience!

The three-year project 'Next-Generation Energy Harvesting Electronics: Holistic Approach' was funded by the EPSRC In 2009, and involved over 25 researchers at four universities (the University of Southampton, Newcastle University, Imperial College, and the University of Bristol) in partnership with four industrial companies (Dialog Semiconductor, Diodes Incorporated, ARM, and Mentor Graphics). The research joined together different research fields, including energy harvesting and MEMS processing, efficient power-conversion electronics, low-power embedded computing systems, simulation and electronic design automation.

'Phase 3' of the human evaluation of the haptic devices that we have been developing is now complete. The human evaluation section of this project had four phases; phases 1, 2 and 4 testing the devices on normal subjects, with phase 3 testing on partipicants with stroke. The information and feedback that we have received from these trials has been invaluable in influencing the design of the devices, and has uncovered a wealth of information on the sensory perception of people following str...

This year, I am serving as the General Co-Chair of the 1st International Workshop on Energy Neutral Sensing Systems (ENSSys 2013). The workshop will be held in conjunction with SenSys 2013 - considered to be one of the two top conferences in the areas of sensor networks and sensing systems. The workshop will be held on November 14th, in the beautiful city of Rome, Italy. We had an excellent set of submissions for the workshop, which are currently under peer review, and it is fantastic that th... [more]
