The increasing demand of "safe" vehicles requires continuous design of innovative devices and sensors. This paper presents a methodology for an efficient energy analysis of a self-powered sensor in an ultra-low power automotive application. In order to achieve this goal, new tools have been developed for storing and elaborating data (e.g., power consumption values, operating conditions, etc.) and even for reporting the energy balance, after considering the source (i.e. a scavenger device) that supplies the sensor.
