Marco Daldoss Wins the 2014 Innovation Design Contest

Created on Tuesday, 18 November 2014

Marco Daldoss won first prize at the "Innovation Design Contest 2014" with the project "Agostino Board”, an energy harvesting framework for Wireless Sensor Networks. The contest has been organized by "Selezione di Elettronica", one of the most relevant magazines in the electronics field, which began in 1957. The 2nd annual contest, supported by "Politecnico di Milano", aims to encourage newly graduated students to demonstrate their talents and creativity, seeking and awarding excellence in the design of on- or off-chips.

Last October Marco, with the support of Prof. Vittorio Ferrari and Anna Richelli, presented this thesis project and graduated with full marks from the University of Brescia.

The project has been directly supervised by Prof. Kinget and developed in the Computer Integrated System Laboratory in the department of Electrical Engineering at Columbia University in New York City. Agostino Board can be connected to various sensors (such as temperature or humidity) and, with the help of a solar cell, can operate with just the energy harvested in an typical indoor environment (without the need to replace the battery). The device can find several application in environmental and biomedical monitoring. Following with this recent accomplishment, Marco has been invited to visit a Freescale research center in Texas the incoming June.
