C2.3 - Thermal Energy Harvesting - Infinite Power for Ubiquitous Monitoring Sensors

&
Wireless sensors continue to see a moderate growth despite their many, undisputed benefits. Wireless sensing is still far from being a ubiquitous technology. One of the obvious reasons is the looming workload of ubiquitous battery maintenance, logistics and disposal, which would likely consume a considerable part of the initial benefits of unlimited information without wires. Both operations and maintenance departments continue spending a major part of their budgets in vain. Energy harvesting is a new...
