Brandon Lucia: Energy Harvesting Computers: Extracting Energy from the Environment

In my lab, we’re developing the basic technology to support what are called “energy harvesting computers.” These are devices that can perform computations, sense their environments, and communicate using energy that they extract from their environments. We can make devices harvest radio waves or use solar energy. By powering these devices with energy extracted from …
