Recipes for Batteryfree Intelligent Electronics with Microbial Fuel Cells

Content of the lecture:

The talk will show the state of the art of energy-neutral techniques for achieving battery-less electronics using biological microbial fuel cells. Millions of connected, intelligent sensors will be deployed in the next decade with this technology, and solutions will need a mind-changing computing paradigm to address both intermittent power and onboard processing intelligence.

Keywords: Energy harvesting, Microbial Fuel cells, Intermittent Computing, Batteryless electronics.
