Energy Harvesting - Perpetual Power Supply for IoT applications
Wireless IoT (successor of Wireless Sensor Network) applications, pose a series of limitations regarding an embedded system’s power consumption and energy autonomy. A desired property of an autonomous system is the capability to operate and survive in unforeseen conditions. This talk is an overview of different aspects of energy harvesting from the energy sources to circuits and systems for power management providing recent advances in energy scavenging as well as in power management techniques such as multi-input multi-output energy harvesting units combining parallel harvesters for various energy sources including (ambient) light, (micro) vibrations and (small) temperature differences.
