Non-invasive head-worn sensors are an upcoming field of interest. Most commercial sensors and sensors presented in research papers are limited in their capabilities and require frequent user interaction. In this Thesis, we research the possibilities of overcoming some of these limitations and extending the capabilities of these sensors.

The rapid increase in global population and rising demands have resulted in a shortage of clean water, depleting several of the Earth's reservoirs, especially those that reserve fresh water. Just 0.007% of the water on Earth is used to hydrate and feed billions of people, as determined by the water balance of the planet. Water-stressed nations...

A growing energy demand has sparked interest into harvesting energy from the human body. Often, a rotational proof mass is used to harness energy for a wearable from kinetic motion of its user. The addition of a spring has the potential to significantly increase efficiency for these low-power rotational energy harvesters. In this research a...

Energy harvesters subtract energy from their surroundings and convert this to electrical energy. Even though energy output is generally low, energy harvesters can offer great value by offering the possibility of self-sustaining devices, combined with the developments in low power semiconductors. Many examples can be found of applications that...

Synchronized ac-dc rectifiers are widely used for energy rectification in piezoelectric energy harvesting (PEH), which have to employ a bulky inductor or some dedicated flying capacitors for high energy conversion efficiency. This article proposes a synchronized switch harvesting on shared capacitors (SSHSC) rectifier achieving synchronized...

In the past decades, inductor-based synchronized switch harvesting on inductor (SSHI) rectifiers have been widely employed in many active rectification systems for piezoelectric energy harvesting. Although SSHI rectifiers achieve high energy extraction performance compared to passive full-bridge rectifier (FBR), the performance greatly...

This article presents a piezoelectric energy harvesting (PEH) interface circuit using a new self-bias-flip with the charge recycle (SBFR) technique without employing any additional energy reservoir. Traditional designs, including synchronous-switch harvesting on inductor (SSHI), synchronous-switch harvesting on capacitor (SSHC), synchronous...

We design a system, SolarGest, which can recognize hand gestures near a solar-powered device by analyzing the patterns of the photocurrent. SolarGest is based on the observation that each gesture interferes with incident light rays on the solar panel in a unique way, leaving its discernible signature in harvested photocurrent. Using solar...

Visible Light Communication (VLC) is widely considered a promising technology for the coming 6G networks. Recent studies show that a VLC transmitter not only emits visible light signals but also leaks RF signals during the transmission. In this work, we devote effort to harvesting the free leaked RF energy from VLC transmissions. We observe that...

Clean energies are being incorporated into the energy mix in numerous countries. Through a spatial survey of maritime trade, restricted military maritime areas, marine planning, and the presence of fauna and flora along the Ligurian Sea, locations for possible investments in wave energy harvesting were identified in the Northern Thyrrenian Sea,...

The hydrofoil harnesses wave energy and converts it into thrust. In this paper, we present the results of the first experimental study investigating the dynamic behavior of a fully passive foil with spring-loaded pitch and heave in regular waves. Our study shows that the real-time load signal is multi-harmonic with strong superposition,...
