The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Wireless sensor networks typically include spatially distributed devices associated with sensors that remotely transmit and receive data over a network. The relayed information can be employed to monitor both physical and environmental conditions such as, for example, temperature, location, and pressure. Such wireless sensor networks can be powered by a variety of power sources such as a battery. Batteries are a cost effective, ubiquitous, and commonly known powering technology. The specific drawbacks of batteries, however, include finite lifetime, replacement cost, and disposal concerns. Additionally, sensor nodes tend to be portable and integrated with multi-functions; therefore, limited power issues, small size and integration capabilities pose additional problems to the effective implementation of a promising wireless sensor network ...read more
