Powering IoT Sensors from Energy-harvesting System

I&T Wish Powering IoT Sensors from Energy-harvesting System
(REF : W-0409)
Matched I&T Solution
Trial Project
Summary and Challenges
  • The objective of this project is to design an energy harvester to door-hinge system which power applications such as IoT electronics, low-energy building devices, etc.
  • Kinetic energy from swinging-door motions into electricity.
  • Site installation and measurements are required for the energy harvester to facilitate this study.
Expected Outcome
  • To design a prototype, conduct trial test to evaluate the energy harvested so as to realize the project application.
  • The aim of this project is to harvest kinetic energy from swinging door motions and apply the energy to other low-energy building devices.
Expected Trial Duration 15-month
