MSc thesis project proposal

Contactless combined energy and data transfer

It should be simple to add and remove sensor nodes without effecting the rest of an athlete monitoring system. The back-bone (interconnect/sensor bus) of the system will be woven into the fabric. Hard-wire galvanic connection to the sensor nodes might be effected and degrade under sweaty conditions. In addition it is not very sufficient to provide each node with its own energy source. Therefore, in this project a non-galvanic coupling method between nodes and backbone is to be developed through which both energy and data can be transferred.
