Where should photovoltaic (PV) energy harvesting be used? This session will look at indoor and outdoor use cases, complete with integration and networking considerations. Solar cells or micro-cells can power devices in buildings, consumer electronics and the environment - to make them more durable, connected and intelligent.
Attendees will get a vibrant review of applications and barriers to adoption in: agriculture, botanical gardens, urban infrastructure, landslide detection, smart homes and unwired controllers on the factory floor, plus a comprehensive review of PV energy harvesting, including sober assessments of organic and dye-sensitized PV cells, and a sense of the related electronics required to harvest and use the power.
