Printed thin-film batteries are emerging technologies for powering next-generation Internet-of-Things devices. Researchers from The University of Queensland (UQ) have been supporting a leading company in this industy, Printed Energy Pty Ltd, on research and development of printed thin-film batteries through a Commonweath Government funded CRC project. Now, we are ready to test one of the prototypes of a real application of these printed batteries. The printed battery-integrated race timing bibs can be an alternative approach for timing the race event by eliminating the necessity of large timing infrastructures.
Come and explore how this technology can create changes for timing the race event by integrating printed thin-film batteries with timing bibs. Your great support as volunteer runners will help us to properly evaluate the prototypes of this innovative technology in real environmental conditions and improve this technology in the near future. This 10 km race test will be held at UQ St Lucia campus along the riverfront St Lucia Parkrun course on 26th of June 2021. This is not a competition, rather completion of the 10 km run is what we really appreciate. Please come and be part of the action. Look forward to meeting you there!
Check-in: 8:30am – 9.15am
Race Briefing: 9.20am
Race test starts from: 9:30am
Check-in Venue: Play field 7 (Athletic playground), Sir William MacGregor Dr, St Lucia QLD 4067
