Master Student Internship in Autonomous IoT sensor unit by Energy Harvesting generator (M/F)

Reference : MRT-2020-Intern-003

Type: Intern
Contract type: Internship
Duration: 6 months
Place: Belvaux

Context

 

Energy harvesting is the conversion of unused kinetic energy (mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic, thermic or electromagnetic) in the surrounding environment into small amount of exploitable electrical energy. This technology, as a new power source for small electronic systems, is attracting more attention in the recent years. It is a promising energy source for self-sustained electronic devices without maintenance with wireless communication capabilities.

 

Description

 

We currently running projects about the realization of new nanotechnology based generators. The mechanisms by which the energy is collected are based on effects such as electromagnetism, triboelectricity and piezoelectricity. The challenge of the work will be the setting of a low consumption wireless communication protocol compatible with the energy harvester to obtain IoT capabilities of the autonomous unit. The internship work will allow building a first prototype as a proof-of-concept. The applications concern industrial market.
