HARVESTING THE EARTH’S ENERGY
Smart farming, also known as precision agriculture, can increase yields of crops. But a challenge for it is to find sustainable electricity that powers sensors and wireless systems. To address this issue, Sensingnet and Asahi Kasei Microdevices have been successful at developing a small battery, using microorganism like bacteria in soil and its ultra-low energy-consumption unique circuit board.
Here comes a new type of energy produced by bacteria. This is a significant technology that will secure a permanent supply of power from almost any place that microbial activity exists. The next phase will be exploring the water.
