Abstract:

Not Available The power supply has been the biggest obstacle to inexpensive, functional, autonomous remote sensors. The nature of this obstacle has been the need to store energy on-board, and existing energy storage options are wholly unsatisfactory. Our company has demonstrated microscopic batteries, for use in remote sensors, and other MEMS devices, which can serve to enable remote, autonomous sensor technology. The goal of this program is to create miniature, remote, autonomous sensors. The sensors will include a MEMS sensing element, a signal transmitter, and a microprocessor controller, and an energy conversion device. The entire sensor will occupy approximately 1 cm3, and will operate at <1mW average power. A wide variety of different sensor types are possible with this paradigm. Furthermore, new types of sensors can be developed and made both quickly and inexpensively. Phase I will involve proof-of concept demonstration of one or two such devices, and careful design of integrated, autonomous sensors for remote applications
