Vibration Energy Harvesting Power Pod - A Solution to charge 'Internet of Things' sensors and reduce landfill waste and toxins
The 'Internet of Things' (IoT) holds huge potential to deliver more efficient and smarter daily services. However, this new development depends on battery-powered devices, which can produce large quantities of battery waste. This device delivers a cost-effective solution to one of IoT’s biggest issue: battery life. The self-charging battery Solution converts ambient energy from the environment into electrical power for wireless sensors. The batteries are designed to handle all sensors requirements, from high operating temperatures to high-current pulses. The potential and use cases for IoT wireless sensors are endless. If there is a vibrating source nearby, then the Power Pod provides the sensor with an extremely long lifetime. This completely eliminates the hassle of replacing the battery every few years. This Solution allows sensors to be powered merely from the vibrations of a bridge, an HVAC unit, a vehicle etc. The possibilities are endless.
