Sensors Insights By Randy Frank

Energy Harvesting for Sensors
Distributed wireless sensing gets even more attractive if frequent battery changes can be eliminated. That's the whole idea behind energy harvesting (EH). Depending on the system design and the type of energy source used, EH enables the design of wireless sensor nodes to provide data for remote monitoring and control in a variety of areas, without having to consider questions of battery life and replacement. continued
