Why is it important?

Energy harvesting sensors can potentially replace battery based sensors, but are limited by the energy available from the environment. If we make the most of the energy available, then harvesting sensors can match the performance of battery sensors. We no longer have to worry about replacing batteries.


If we have good quality energy harvesting wireless sensors, then we can just place them wherever needed and forget about it. It becomes really convenient to place these sensors where we need them, without limiting ourselves by wiring or manual replacement of batteries. These sensors can provide us all kinds of information about the physical world such as "did I leave my window open?", "what is the air quality near my house?".
