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]
