ABSTRACT

This paper presents a modular platform allowing green sensing applications. It is composed of a dedicated Integrated Circuit (IC) with energy harvesting system, sensors, rechargeable battery, a processor and a memory. A sensing system has been designed. It comprises the modular transponder platform, a transceiver with advanced communication features and user applications. The sensing system acts as a smart miniaturized system with multi-functions feature and is a key to achieve different application in the sensing and monitoring field. Thanks to the Layered HW/Firmware/SW system structure, the smart sensing platform offers the possibility to extend application domains. One of the key impacts of the system is the development of green applications. The new developed energy harvesting system leads to a self-powered system which is a new benefit in the sensing and continuous monitoring. Using rechargeable battery and energy harvesting systems will prevent often discarding away old batteries. Furthermore, thanks to the embedded data processing, the sensing platform allows the development of environment-sensitive applications such as shelf life prediction that can help to reduce food losses.
