REM

Recover of Energy from fluid Mechanics for internet of things and remote sensing

Sector

Energy

Product/Objective

Recovery of Mechanical Energy from fluids to feed and Internet of Things (IoT) node that monitors diesel-engine exhaust gases.

Project Summary

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.

Innovation

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.

ES Role

EnginSoft is the project coordinator and will conduct the FSI (fluid structure interaction) and system simulation activities.

Research project

FORCE

Formulations and Computational Engineering

The project aimed to develop an open integrated framework that connects materials models at various levels of complexity, experimental data sets and commercial information (e.g. ingredients and processing costs), so that decision makers can use a wider variety of key performance indicators.

Research project

EDEN ISS

Ground Demonstration of Plant Cultivation Technologies and Operation in Space

The aim of EDEN ISS is to identify operation procedures for safe food production in space through adaptation, integration and demonstration of higher plant cultivation techniques.
