Small, Low-Power, Connected Sensors: "Energy Harvesting Active Networked Tags (EnHANTs) for Ubiquitous Object Networking"

CTN Issue: December 2014

Small, low-power active devices are the focus of this article describing Energy-Harvesting Active Networked Tags (EnHANTs): Small, flexible devices that gather energy from light, vibration or other environmental sources. EnHANTs are capable of transmitting up to 30 feet (9 meters) without consuming much energy, acting as wireless transceivers that use ultra-wideband to send short pulses or bursts of information.
