Presentation Summary

The success of Internet of things is linked to a durable power supply for wireless sensors and actuators. Especially in industrial applications the utilization of batteries can lead to non-economic implications unless a deduction relative to performance or lifetime is accepted. The latest generation of scalable, thermal energy harvesters is offering a great opportunity for cost savings in IoT through long term power supply, leveraging the fact that temperature deltas are everywhere.
