AMANDA: An Autonomous Self-Powered Miniaturized Smart Sensing Embedded System

This paper introduces an Autonomous Smart Sensing Card (ASSC), an embedded system that will be powered indoors and outdoors by harvested energy, have miniaturized dimensions and serve multi-sensorial IoT applications for smart living and working environments. It will consist of a combination of newly developed and optimized off-the-shelf or close-tocommercialization technologies such as PV harvesters, energy storage and power management units, MCUs and sensors, all packed with a form factor under 3mm in thickness. The system will introduce technical breakthroughs that will boost further miniaturization, a small footprint, ultra-low power consumption as well as short- and long-range communications.
