CMOS-MEMS accelerometerSEMIoTIC project main goal is investigating and providing integrated solutions to distributed sensing networks and the Internet of Things, which contribute to minimize environmental, energetic and material costs.

In order to achieve this objective, we plan to evaluate, design and experimentally test multiple integrated microelectromechanical sensors and the associated electronics using standard CMOS technology to implement monolithic or quasi-monolithic systems for environment sensing.

When power consumption of such systems is reduced to sub-milliwatt levels under active operation, it is possible to envisage self-powered, autonomous devices, also called motes, that harvest energy from the ambient and are able to provide simple sensing operations and transmit this information to a wireless network. Thus, it is intended to demonstrate the possibility of using sensor systems in some applications without any maintenance and being able to run indefinitely except for aging.
