Project description

Wireless hardware, including autonomous and wearable devices are responsible to collect and feed data for various networks thus creating the sensing elements of the Internet of Things. To manage power supply of independent devices, new energy technologies that combine harvesting and storage are necessary. While a number of promising enabling materials and structures exist today, their integration into real devices is the major challenge today, thus setting the topic and goal of our project.
