Project Summary
The fourth industrial revolution has been recently coined in the industry. It includes automation, robotics and internet of things (IoT). It is often desirable to extend the network lifetime of IoT. However, IoT motes are typically powered by small batteries, which is a finite energy source. Therefore, energy harvesting IoT (EH- IoT), is a very promising solution for perpetual operations. The main aim of this research is to accurately model the EH-IoT for both indoor and outdoor which can predict the long term behaviour for designing purposes.
Project Research Area: Energy Harvesting, Modelling, Internet of Things
