Securing power for IoT devices

   Last Modified:    Published: 2021/05

In recent years, the market has seen the long-awaited introduction of devices and systems that communicate information to all sorts of other devices that have communications capabilities, IoT and M2M devices being the most notable examples.

The energy efficiency of sensors and telecommunications modules used in such devices has improved significantly. The conversation now centers around how to continue to supply power while changing batteries or recharging power sources.

However, devices such as livestock monitoring where changing batteries or recharging is not practical due to the number of appliances require a different approach. As a solution to these long-term power supply requirements, energy harvesting, which turns kinetic energy of the surroundings into electrical energy, and sensors and telecommunications modules that use energy harvesting as a power source are gaining attention.
