Battery-Free Approach to Ocean Internet of Things

Ice caps are melting, garbage islands are floating, and the surface temperature of the ocean is rising but scientists are still struggling to figure out an effective solution for monitoring the depths of our oceans. Scientists want to get a pulse on how the ocean is changing, and to do this they are currently collecting data using battery-powered underwater sensors.

However, batteries can serve as a potential pollutant if they get damaged underwater. A group of MIT researchers is attempting to understand our oceans better without relying on batteries with their innovative battery-free underwater sensors.
