Project description

The reliability and energy efficiency of wearable on-body sensor networks will be improved by combining new autonomous sensor modules with an innovative network and energy management system. State-of-the art sensors and controllers will be implemented, each sensor will contain antennas to set up off-body as well as on-body communication links together with energy scavengers and inductive links that supply energy.
