Apis: A Software and Hardware Toolkit for Federated Power Management in Energy Harvesting Applications

Abstract (Summary)

Embedded systems and Internet of Things (IoT) devices have been limited in application by constraints posed by batteries. Batteries add size, weight, and upkeep costs, while also limiting the lifetime of devices that are preferred to be small, lightweight, and long-lasting. We present Apis, a software and hardware toolkit for federated power management in energy harvesting applications. By replacing batteries with rapid charging storage capacitors, circuitry to control federated energy storage, and software support to make this architecture useful to developers, embedded devices can potentially run indefinitely with limited maintenance. We present the Apis hardware design for controlling federated energy storage, supporting software for controlling this hardware, and the results of experiments performed to validate the Apis model. The system is named after the taxonomy genus for the honey bee, a creature dedicated to the harvesting and federated storage of energy resources.
