Energy harvesting is not a solution for every wireless sensing node. However, it is being successfully applied in industrial, consumer and other applications. As in most system problems, there are technical and cost constraints.

Presenters in this session will provide an in-depth analysis of the challenges and solutions of using energy harvesting techniques of varying types for powering sensors in wireless applications. In addition to exploring the energy harvesting technologies, other system aspects will be addressed including high efficiency, low-power microcontrollers, wireless connectivity, and power management. By explaining the design-in requirements for existing energy harvesting products in real-world applications, attendees will have new tools to consider in the design of next-generation sensor systems.

Session attendees will leave with an improved understanding of:

  1. How to match the energy harvesting technology to specific applications
  2. The importance of the energy/power budget
  3. The current status of available technologies
  4. Technology direction from industry leaders
