With the right combination of disruptive features, such as battery free self-powered operation, multimodal sensing capability, comfort, wearability, and continuous data gathering leading to actionable information, the potential of autonomously powered smart sensing nodes can be realized to provide long-term monitoring for health and IoT applications. This paper reports on recent breakthroughs in technologies essential for achieving self-powered operation and shows how engineering both sides of the power equation, namely generation and consumption, can lead to always on operation. This work is being conducted in the NSF funded ERC Center on Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST).
