Thermal gradients, commonly present in our environment (fluid lines, warm fronts, electronics) are sources of energy rarely used today. This paper aims to present innovative approaches of thin and/or flexible thermal energy harvesters for smart and autonomous sensor network applications. The harvester system will be based on the collaborative work of interrelated energy nodes/units, which will be either piezo-thermofluidic converters (use of rapid thermal cycles of a working fluid) or piezo… CONTINUE READING
