This paper presents the design, integration, and test of a self-contained wireless hydrogen sensor system powered using ambient vibrations and light. A large number of distributed sensors are required to safely operate hydrogen production, storage, distribution, and fuel cell facilities for aviation, space, and terrestrial applications. Due to cost and reliability issues pertaining to a widespread distributed network, a completely wireless hydrogen sensor system is desirable. For a long (10 year) operating life with minimal maintenance, a wireless system implies both wireless data transmission and local energy mining and/or wireless collection of directed RF energy. Design procedures and issues pertaining to minimizing power consumption for a self-powered hydrogen sensor system are discussed.
