Guardian Angels for a Smarter Life: Enabling a Zero-Power Technological Platform for Autonomous Smart Systems
The concept, objectives and work proposed by the Guardian Angels for Smarter Life FET Flagship Pilot are designed to result in visionary, science driven, goal-oriented, large-scale, multidisciplinary research flagship proposal, nucleated from ICT future and emerging technologies. Guardian Angels are defined as zero-power intelligent autonomous systems-of-systems featuring sensing, computation and communication and being powered by advanced energy harvesters. In this paper we describe the zero-power technological platform as an enabler of such autonomous smart systems, the related scientific and technical challenges, their possible applications and the societal impact.
