Energy depletion from the environment has recently been set as an important paradigm for the purpose of operating wireless sensor networks in the future. Instead of using batteries or power from the mains, wireless sensors can use energy from, for example, solar cells, temperature gradients, vibrations or radio waves. More than 16 billion units are expected to be connected in 2022 and as a consequence, the energy issue of running these devices becomes central. Energy management is considered as a key technology for Internet-of-Things (IoT) and for wireless sensor networks, which includes both smart homes and smart factories.


The Signals and Systems department has a well-established research position in the field both nationally and internationally, with good contacts with industrial players such as ABB and Ericsson. For more information, see
