Recovery of Mechanical Energy from fluids to feed and Internet of Things (IoT) node that monitors diesel-engine exhaust gases.
The project proposes the development of a system to recover kinetic energy from easily accessible sources in order to make it immediately available for equipment in daily use (e.g. sensors for wearable devices, very low power actuators, low range wireless transmitters, etc.), whose need to be as energy independent as possible is propelling a rigorous search for appropriate technological solutions.
The proposed energy recovery system is based on an innovative technology composed of recyclable and environmentally friendly materials, which uses extremely flexible piezoelectric devices and very small dimensions to recover kinetic energy from gaseous fluids (e.g. wind, gases in pipes and air currents), but also from the movement of liquids (e.g. waves, sea and river currents), and which has virtually zero environmental and visual impact.
EnginSoft is the project coordinator and will conduct the FSI (fluid structure interaction) and system simulation activities.
