Smart and Flexible Energy Supply Platform for Wearable Electronics


The aim of the Smart2Go project is the creation of an autonomous energy-supply platform. Based on the results of the project it will be possible to use a wearable without caring about recharging over its entire lifetime. This aim will be achieved by the combination of a powerful, thin and scalable battery with appropriate energy harvesting technologies. Each unit will be capable for a storage capacity up to 110 mWh (10 cm² area). All the performances will be retained after bending.

The performance of the Smart2Go energy supply platform will be demonstrated in two application cases: (1) sport equipment integrating Smart2Go platform and pressure sensitive array and (2) safety garment integrating Smart2Go platform and lighting technologies (OLEDs). They represent a challenge for the demonstration of the Smart2Go platform reliability in extreme environment (i.e. cold temperature, snow, rain, etc.) and a proof of the technical feasibility of the Smart2Go solutions.

Smart2Go project will integrate several technologies (energy harvesting, energy storage, and energy management) in one modular platform, where the different components (OPV, TE cells, supercapacitors) and functionalities, (piezo sensors, lighting technologies) can be easily replaced to serve many different applications in the area of flexible and wearable electronics.


AMIRES was involved in the project’s preparation and in the negotiation phase. Within the project the company will be actively involved in the project management, coordination of project meetings (including External Advisory Board meetings), dissemination, exploitation and organization of the design contest for the identification of new applications.
