Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction

Transforming infrastructure through smarter information

The company 8power, spun-out of CSIC to develop and commercialise novel technology for sensing and measurement in industrial applications, has been selected as one of the candidates for Best Paper Award at the Smart Systems Integration 2017 conference.



The paper presents how 8power's work on energy harvesting technology enables a step change in sensor performance. 

The Smart Systems Integration conference, held in Cork, Ireland, on March 8 and 9, brings together a wide range of industry experts to present and discuss the integration issues of miniaturised systems when using Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS), ICs and Electronic Components.

CEO of 8power, Antony Rix, said: “It’s great to be recognised as a thought leader in the field of Vibration Energy Harvesting. Certainly, as a company, we are working very hard to overcome several tough integration challenges. This work has offered us opportunities to create some new IP. Our proposed paper will discuss getting a new technology product in to the market.”
