—The difficulty of maximizing the proof mass, and lack of broadband operation, are key issues for miniaturized energy-harvesting devices. Here, a novel electrostatic energy harvester is presented, employing an external free-rolling proof mass to address these issues. A description of the operating principle is given, and the kinetic dynamics of the cylinder(More)
—One of the main challenges in developing wireless biometric sensors is the requirement for integration of various systems into a very compact device. Such systems include sensing units, conditioning electronics, transmitters and power supplies. In this work, a novel system integration architecture is presented. A unique feature of this new architecture is(More)
There are two simple methods of supplying power to a wireless, low-power sensor in an aircraft: a battery, or direct access to the aircraft power line. In the former, the battery will eventually need to be replaced whilst the latter option, which is highly intrusive and difficult to retrofit into existing aircraft, increases the weight and presents(More)
