Grant Description

Summary and Description of the grant

Technology evangelists use the catch-phrase "Anytime, anywhere, anything" when they promise untethered wireless data flow not only among people, but also among devices of any imaginable sort.

Wireless networks offer a solution to the solve wiring problem, but powering such systems requires increasing amounts of energy, and also introduces the constraint of changing and recharging millions of batteries.

In order to achieve the vision of a seamlessly integrated data and knowledge centric world we must solve the issue of a sustainable replenishment of power to the digital world that can be addressed both by reducing the power consumption of the devices that we use and of harvesting energy if possible on board the devices themselves through energy harvesting.

This project will develop a principled understanding of communication networks which live on energy, so that system designs can be optimised by considering energy harvesting in conjunction with data processing and communications. We will develop methods for system design that allows adaptationion of network to changes in the available energy, as well as to the distribution of the energy within the network itself. The project will also develop novel vibration and thermal energy harvesters, and appropriate storage units.

All these aspects will be integrated into an overall practical wireless network test-bed to demonstrate and test the concepts studied in the project.
