Well there are a number of wireless sensors for health monitoring that are being developed, Rob, so I think this would be a good application for those. Check this story out I wrote awhile back about it: http://www.designnews.com/document.asp?doc_id=244432
Yes, Rob, it seems like wireless sensors are a chief application for this sort of thing. And there are a whole new wave of medical and health-monitoring sensors that are emerging that would benefit from an energy source that doesn't require a traditional type battery.
That's a good question, Nadine. I imagine they should be able to, but it could depend on which type of wireless connectivity they support. But it seems like a foolish design for them not to work globally.
This could be handy for companies that require remote sensors. In the past remote sensors have a power source that runs down and needs to be replaced, which is costly in technician time. Plus, there is always the possibility that a device's power source could run down before its scheduled replacement. This could end that burden.
The Smart Emergency Response System capitalizes on the latest advancements in cyber-physical systems to connect autonomous aircraft and ground vehicles, rescue dogs, robots, and a high-performance computing mission control center into a realistic vision.
