The Distributed System of Smart Wearable Energy Harvesting Based on Human Body
【摘要】：Wearable devices have appeared in every aspect of our lives, from small items such as wristbands and eyeglasses to finished garments as shoes and clothing. With the promoting of scientific development, intelligent technology is also combined with wearable devices to form a unique network that depends on the human body. The increasing demand for equipment has made smart wearable devices a research hotspot. Such equipment is usually small, light-weight, good flexibility, and can be adapted to the complex use of the environment. But these advantages just become the limitations of power supply for equipment.Generally, the fixed charger can not be used to charge the device during use, and the volume of such a special battery can not be increased in order to increase the storage capacity. Therefore, how to solve the problem of power suppling for the wearable device effectively is a big challenge. Based on this, the paper proposes a distributed system of smart wearable energy harvesting, which considers the human body as the core and uses a variety of ubiquitous energy sources such as solar energy, thermal energy and mechanical energy. The system makes a combination of wearable and distributed design to form a wireless body area network,and provides a stable power output for smart wearable devices.
