A Battery-Free Sensor For Underwater Exploration

Pollyanna Sidell - Associated Environmental Systems

MIT-Battery-TestingA battery-free underwater “piezoelectric” sensor invented by MIT researchers transmits data by absorbing or reflecting sound waves back to a receiver, where a reflected wave decodes a 1 bit and an absorbed wave decodes a 0 bit — and simultaneously stores energy.
