Energy Harvesting Demonstration EventDate: Monday 13th June 2016, 10:00am-3:00pm
Location: Harrison Building, University of Exeter, Exeter, EX4 4QF, UK
Sensor devices are everywhere and they all need a power source. Energy harvesting technology is promising to provide a perpetual power source by harvesting an ambient environmental energy for the sensors. It is predicted that the market for energy harvesting will reach to USD 3 billion in 2024.
The Energy Harvesting Research Group at Exeter has developed high performance energy harvesting powered wireless sensor systems that are able to capture energy from structural vibration and human walking. The developed systems have potential for extensive applications such as aeroplanes, trains, and humans with sensor devices, and have the ability to monitor structural health without needs for:
- extensive and heavy and costly wiring,
- replacement of battery.
It is truly 'fit and forget' and can significantly reduce costs and time in installation, replacement and maintenance of batteries.
The aim of the event is to have a showcase to cover the following aspects of the systems which Exeter has developed:
- How are the systems integrated together with high performance?
- How is the energy managed to power wireless sensors at the case of energy mismatch between harvested and demanded?
- What is the powering capability of wireless sensors?
The Energy Harvesting Research Group at Exeter invites you to join us for a one-day premier energy harvesting event. You will have an opportunity to see live technology demonstrations of Exeter's cutting edge research activities and to discuss how the technology can be taken forward for a wide range of applications.
This event is free to attend. This event will include presentations, a poster session and system demostrations in the morning and discussions and questions in the afternoon, and will include lunch and light refreshments.
If you wish to join us for this event, please fill out on-line book form by 30 May, 2016
