- As sensor nodes become ubiquitous, the need to power wireless sensor nodes from ambient energy sources will be a necessity. Possible ambient energy sources include light, heat, vibration, stress / strain, high intensity AC magnetic fields and micro-sized rotational or oscillatory electromagnetic generators. In many instances a battery will be required to “ride through” the periods of time when the ambient energy source is either not present or not sufficient to power the sensor.
- This development platform demonstrates the ability to utilize any one or multiple ambient energy sources to power a wireless sensor node and extend the life of a primary or secondary battery. A convenient system is provided to enable users to customize the development platform for their specific use case and make a complete working prototype.
