C3.3 - Energy-Autarkic Sensors in Aircrafts

K. Bartholomé
Sensors are the eyes and ears in the service of people - especially in inaccessible areas where regular maintenance or battery replacement is extremely difficult. A solution can be the implementation of self-powered sensor networks that autonomously collect their required energy from their surroundings. After installation of the sensors they collect and transmit their data without any need for further maintenance like battery replacement. In aeronautics, maintenance of airplanes is one of the major cost...
