PAGE 32 Editorials from EE Faculty (Cont.) Environmentally Powered WSN for Air Quality Monitoring Operating in a “Set-and-Forget Scenario” (Cont.) Prof. Farid Touati Professor at the EED Qatar University Self-Powered: environmental energy harvesting means no batteries or grid power required for operation . Efficient: individual components have low power requirements . Modular design: can be modified readily. Scalable: system can grow from a single device to thousands of networked devices. Robust: proven operation in harsh environments like summer of Doha Aesthetic Design: public spaces will not be disrupted by system’s shape. APPLICATIONS All the applications below are operable in an IoT-based AQ index service (Figure 3). Indoor/outdoor AQ monitoring by municipalities, government agencies (e.g., National Weather Service), etc. Fossil fuel power plants Industrial facilities Networked cloud-based systems with multiple data collection devices Transportation movement and management. DEVELOPMENT STATUS Researchers have successfully fabricated this technology and conducted precommercialization testing in a laboratory then outdoor environment in Doha and Italy for extended periods raising it to TRL5/6 (technology readiness level 5/6). PATENT PROTECTION This technology is protected under the US Patent US 15/304,855, published 7/5/2015. LICENSING OPPORTU- NITIES Qatar Foundation is offering this technology for license.
