Abstract

Due to their ease of deployment, wireless sensors have been used in a wide range of applications, including security, green building, automotive and biomedical. Most of the state-of-the-art wireless sensors use batteries as a power source. It can be easily calculated that for a building with 1000 wireless sensors installed, which can be very common for a smart building, assuming a battery life of 3 years, on average, batteries need to be replaced every day. Therefore, from the point of view of cost, convenience, environment, and reliability, there is a strong demand for battery-less wireless sensors.
