Challenge:Today a modern car is equipped with over 60 sensors to monitor essential aspects such as temperature, oil pressure, emission levels, speed, etc. This number is only expected to increase as self-driving and electric vehicles become more popular. However, these kinds of sensors need to be connected to a power source using cables and connectors, which add undesired weight, and lower the overall reliability of the vehicle.
Solution: The main objective of SUINK is to design and implement sustainable, flexible, and printable self-charging power systemsable to supply power to a wide range of sensors.
