HaRFest develops a printed energy harvesting device for next gen smart packaging

harfestThe "haRFest" project has successfully created a novel printed energy harvesting device that will draw energy from the user's mobile telephone to provide the power for electronic functionality incorporated into smart packaging. This technology is essential for realising the Internet of Things, a world in which smart objects sense information about their environment, process this information to respond appropriately, and communicate with individuals or other electronic devices.

The 18-month long project was funded by Innovate UK and led by PragmatIC Printing Ltd in collaboration with the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Large-Area Electronics and the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI).
