Energy Harvesting Wireless Strain Networks, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Energy Harvesting Wireless Strain Networks, Phase I
Prime Research LC (PPLC) and Virginia Tech (VT) propose to develop an energy harvesting wireless strain node technology that utilizes single-crystal piezoelectric fiber-based energy harvesting, highly sensitive and low power piezoresistive strain gages, and ultra wide-band (UWB) ultra low power radio communication. Single crystal piezoelectric fibers promise to improve piezoelectric harvesting power density by a factor of 4 – 5  while the ultra wide-band radio (UWB) and piezoresist More »
