Abstract
A novel electronic energy harvester (EH) has been developed for oceanic undrogued drifter applications. First, spherical body motion simulation has been performed at sea environment in Orcaflex. Results help to understand the acceleration and forces applied on the drifter where the device will be placed. Second, the design of the EH is presented, consisting on a gyroscope pendulum system capable to transform the oscillations into rotation on a flying wheel. This rotation is converted into a DC c...
