Piezoelectric microgenerators based on harvesting ambient energy and the integration of low-cost, self-powered wireless autonomous sensors for the Internet of Things (IoT).
Multiple energy sources. Low-cost manufacturing. Reduced size. Autonomous and smart. Modular and reliable. Innovative.
There is a necessity to avoid the maintenance associated with charging or replacing batteries in sensor networks, especially when there is a great number of sensors or access is difficult.
This product can harvest residual ambient energy present in the application environment by way of vibrations, electromagnetic fields associated with current carrying cables and the flux of a gas or a liquid inside a pipe. This allows for the deployment of autonomous wireless sensors that makes the concept of a “self-powered Internet of things” possible.
