This SBIR Phase I will model and physically demonstrate wearable, small factor, and lightweight thermoelectric generator prototypes powered by human body heat. The project will make use of Perpetua`s novel Flexible Thermoelectric Film technology to yield higher voltages and power from small active… More
The human body is a near perfect energy generator. Demand for energy harvesting innovation, along with technology advances in thin film thermoelectric generators and highly efficient DC/DC boost circuitry now place wearable thermoelectric power harvesting within reach.
The objective of Perpetua`s… More
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project addresses the need for renewably powered and always available energy for powering personal medical and other location aware sensors. The project advances wearable thermoelectric generator (WTEG) technology. The system will yield new… More
