Future eco-friendly sensors

Why bother with batteries and wires if you can get your environment to provide energy directly to sensors, applications and wireless technologies?

Energy Harvesting is the principle of technologies which harvest energy from the immediate environment and in this way becomes self-sufficient.

Sign up to seminar 10 November on climate and environmental monitoring sensors, which are self-sufficient in energy harvested directly from their immediate environment. This is also known as Energy Harvesting.

DELTA invites you to come and meet Professor Shashank Priya from Virginia Tech, who will update you on this new energy form.

09.00-09.30   Welcome
Senior Specialist Thomas Sørensen, DELTA

09.30-10.15   Energy Harvesting in small scale Applications
Status on current Energy Harvesting applications on Virginia Tech.
What is possible with the technology of today and what can we expect in the near future.
Professor Shashank Priya, Virginia Tech

10.15-10.40   Vibration as an Energy Source in Sensor networks
What energy levels can we expect of Macor fiber Composite. DELTA's current results with the climate spear and energy producing clothes.
Ph.D. Student Dushan Vuckovic, DELTA/DTU

10.40-11.00   Break

11.00-11.45   Sensor networks in high arctic environment
Lessons learned after 3 years operation.
Professor Phillippe Bonnet, ITU

11.45-12.05   Testbed
The tool for testing and validating sensor networks before operation
Ph.D. Student Aslak Johansen, DELTA/ITU

12.05-13.00   Lunch

13.00-13.45   Buliding Energy Management (to be confirmed)
Some lessons from the Local Project at UC Berkeley.
Stephen Dawson-Haggerty, University of California Berkeley

13.45-14.05   Obstacles when designing green products for the future
Not an easy way to focus on green energy as a design studio, but it is still the right way. Danish Designer Jesper K. Thomsen has among other green projects, a small scale household mill on the drawing board. The way from idea to product is long and requires involvement of more expertises than you may think of.
Jesper K. Thomsen, Jesper K. Thomsen

14.05-14.30   Break

14.30-15.05   RFID and Energy Harvesting
The next generation of RFID tags is intelligent and covers functionality which is close to sensor network
Jesper Kamp Nielsen, DELTA

15.05-15.30   Optical sensor vs. low power camera (to be confirmed)
The evolvement of optical sensors makes it possible to measure without touching. The energy need for these sensors is reduced and camera technology will make it possible to create new types of sensors with a reduced power tag.
Jan H. Hansen, DELTA

15.30-16.00   Conclusion
Thomas Sørensen, DELTA
