WSN powered by vibration energy harvesters

At the recent Sensors Expo and Conference, MicroGen Systems demonstrated its vibration energy harvesting BOLT Power Cells powering a live wireless sensor network (WSN) using Linear Technology’s Dust Networks LTC5800-IPM SmartMesh IP mote-on-chip. The Linear mote was powered by MicroGen’s piezoelectric micro-electromechanical systems (piezo-MEMS) vibrational energy harvester or micro-power generator (MPG) technology.

The Linear WSN consisted of four motes… (more)
