The EnHANTs (Energy Harvesting Active Networked Tags) project is one of three winners from the Vodafone Americas Foundation Wireless Innovation Project, an initiative that challenges teams to build wireless technologies that addresses critical global issues. The EnHANTs team has developed a system for locating people trapped by fires and structural collapse, by embedding networked tags into building structures, mobile devices  and clothing. The tags collect energy passively from the environment, either from light of movement.
