A novel human body channel (HBC) energy harvesting scheme for body sensor networks (BSNs) is proposed in this paper. Human body channel is utilized innovatively as energy transmission medium to reduce the transmission loss dramatically and eliminate influence of shadow effect. Further, a high sensitivity and efficiency rectifier is presented by introducing an effective threshold compensation circuit. Experimental results of the energy harvesting scheme show that it can supply 2-μW power… CONTINUE READING
