Energy Autonomy of Batteryless and Wireless Embedded Systems : Aeronautical Applications (Hardcover)
About this item
Energy Powering of Battery-Free Wireless Embedded Systems covers the numerous new applications of embedded systems that are envisioned in the context of aeronautics, such as sensor deployment for flight tests or for structural health monitoring. However, the already too large burden of on-board cabling asks for wireless solutions. Moreover, such concerns as safety or system lifetime preclude the use of electrochemical energy storage. Ambient energy capture, storage and management are therefore key topics.
This book presents these concepts and illustrates them through actual implementations in airliners. With five years of experience within this specialist field, the authors present results from actual flight tests via their partnership with Airbus. The book synthetizes the basic concepts involved, together with practical implementations in airliners, enriching the book through the very specific aspects related to embedded systems deployed in aircrafts.
- Features a complete study of the energy management architecture, from general concepts to specific applications
- Presents results from thorough studies on electrostatic energy storage
- Provides hands-on consideration of industrial implementations in airliners, specifically in harsh environments
- Includes actual results obtained from flight tests
