Abstract: This paper shows the design and implementation of an autarkic wireless system for actuators. A thermoelectric generator (TEG) is used to power the system from ambient heat sources and therefore batteries or an external supply are not required. With the integrated radio module, the system can control and drive an actuator. In this application a DC-motor is used. The required energy for the actuator is also harvested using the TEG.
