A Chip-Free, Wireless Electronic "Skin"

Wearable sensors are ubiquitous thanks to wireless technology that enables a person's glucose concentrations, blood pressure, heart rate, and activity levels to be transmitted seamlessly from sensor to smartphone for further analysis. Most wireless sensors today communicate via embedded Bluetooth chips that are themselves powered by small batteries. But these conventional chips and power sources will likely be too bulky for next-generation sensors, which are taking on smaller, thinner, more flexible forms.

Wireless Charging Pilot Projects

Wireless Charging Pilot Projects

Wireless charging adoption is accelerating and being recognised as the most convenient electric vehicle recharging solution. Various pilot projects are demonstrating the effective use of the technology in the commercial vehicle segment. Auto OEMs are either retrofitting kits or negotiating the option to factory-install wireless power transfer hardware with wireless charging companies. This article takes a deep dive into some of the noticeable public projects and highlights the technical challenges and lessons learnt from them.

Smart, Dissolving Pacemaker Communicates with Body-Area Sensors

Smart, Dissolving Pacemaker Communicates with Body-Area Sensors

Last summer, Northwestern University researchers introduced the first-ever transient pacemaker — a fully implantable, wireless device that harmlessly dissolves in the body after it's no longer needed. Now, they unveil a new, smart version that is integrated into a coordinated network of soft, flexible, wireless, wearable sensors and control units placed around the upper body.

Charging Underwater, Body-Implanted Electronics With Ultrasonic Waves

As the population ages and with the advancements in medical technology, the number of patients using implanted electronic devices, such as artificial pacemakers and defibrillators, is increasing worldwide. Currently, the batteries of body-implanted devices are replaced by an incision surgery, which may lead to health complications. Accordingly, a new charging technique by wireless energy transfer is emerging that can also be used to charge the batteries of underwater devices, such as sensors, that are used for monitoring the conditions of submarine cables.
