    Energy harvesting methodologies for trackside and on-board signalling and communication devices. Adaptation of already existing technologies for developing a purely on-board train integrity.

    An Italian University is presenting a project proposal concerning the development of a wireless sensor network powered by an energy harvesting device to be applied in a moving train. The call of interest is H2020 S2R-OC-IP2-02-2017: Energy harvesting methodologies for trackside and on-board signalling and communication devices. Adaptation of already existing technologies for developing a purely on-board Train Integrity.

    The University is URGENTLY looking for two kind of partners:

    • Expert in software development for Wireless Sensor Network: this partner must implement the protocol needed to transfer data between nodes. The software must manage the data acquisition, the energy stored, the data transmission and the elaboration of the data collected
    • Expert in low power electronics: this partner's role is to design the electronics needed to efficiently rectify the AC current coming from the EH device and to develop the interface with the sensors and the radio.

    The call deadline is 30 March 2017.

    Details about the project idea are available here. For expression of interest please send a short background of your expertise to Emile Dupont.
