Kinetic energy harvesting converts movement or vibrations into electrical energy, enables battery free operation of wireless sensors and autonomous devices and facilitates their placement in locations where replacing a battery is not feasible or attractive. This book provides an introduction to operating principles and design methods of modern kinetic energy harvesting systems and explains the implications of harvested power on autonomous electronic systems design. It describes power conditioning circuits that maximize available energy and electronic systems design strategies that minimize power consumption and enable operation. The principles discussed in the book will be supported by real case studies such as battery-less monitoring sensors at water waste processing plants, embedded battery-less sensors in automotive electronics and sensor-networks built with ultra-low power wireless nodes suitable for battery-less applications.Hence, state-of-the-art rim-mounted direct systems, equipped in many (US) cars, have limited sensing capabilities, ... spikes), which would be a very valuable parameter for the ABS system to further optimize the stopping distance of the vehicle in emergency situations. ... 4.7 Block diagram of the in-tire TPMS sensor node.
