According to the forecasts, the market of wireless smart sensors should generate revenues more than 5 billion euro in 2011 (source: http://www.rfidjournal.com). Faced with such future strong technical and economical impact, it is of strategic importance to maintain the Europe's leadership in these domains. The energy management, scavenging and storing techniques  in wireless smart sensors are R&D topics of high relevance in such domain (EPoSS Strategic Research Agenda) and therefore of critical importance. The E-STARS project will investigate these areas by aiming at developing enhanced sensing and communication capability on an autonomous smart micro system, which will be powered by a new 3D high capacity integrated micro battery.

Objective

E-STARS project aims at developing enhanced sensing and communication capability on an autonomous smart micro system powered by a new 3D high capacity integrated micro battery. According to the experts, the market of wireless smart sensors should generate revenues more than 5 billion euro in 2011 (source: http://www.rfidjournal.com). Faced with such future strong technical and economical impact, it is of strategic importance to maintain the Europe¿s leadership in these domains. Considered as an RandD topic of high relevance in such domain (EpoSS Strategic Research Agenda), the energy-management, scavenging and storing techniques aspects will be particularly investigated by the E-STARS project.\nThe objective is to reach higher energy-management and autonomy performance packed in a smaller volume. The innovative 3D architectures micro batteries will increase by 5 to 10 the battery capacity (from 100 µAh/cm² to 1 000 µAh/cm²) and power (from 5 mW/cm² to 50 mW/cm²) compared to traditional solutions. To do so, the consortium will investigate completely new deposition processes for micro battery layers such as Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD), electrospraying and electrodeposition in order to obtain 3D higher aspect ratio aspects. \nThe consortium involves well known complementary research partners (CEA, TUDELFT and UNIVERSITY of PARIS XI), industrial partners (MOTOROLA, STMICROELECTRONICS), as well ad SME¿s (BIOAGE and CORA TINE TEORANTA) from 5 EU countries. \nAs a STREP project, E-STARS addresses clearly the objective 6 of challenge 3 of the ICT call 2 : Micro/nanosystems. The targeted applications within the project are : wearable intelligent micro sensors, wireless networked sensors associated to an intelligent data to internet platform and innovative nanogravimetric sensors and biosensors.\nMore globally, thanks to an optimized dissemination of the result, the project will provide the EU industry with new highly autonomous wireless sensors to face the strong competition in this field.
