Analogue wake-up techniques and energy harvesting in integrated wireless radios



  • Derive the requirements for the wake-up system from realistic application scenarios
  • Research the best methods to reach these requirements in the areas of analogue circuit design and digital signal processing
  • Investigate methods to protect wake-up systems from attacks without increasing power consumptions
  • Develop suitable energy-harvesting methods in view of the target applications and the system components
  • Implement the wake-up system components and integrate them to prototypical wake-up-enabled sensor nodes
  • Evaluate the system by real application scenarios. The implemented wake-up architecture will be carefully evaluated not only in lab environment, but also in field tests
