Members of Mechatricity publish Piezoelectric research

Wednesday, January 6, 2016

For many applications such as biomedical, mechanical, or environmental monitoring devices, harnessing the energy of small motions could provide a small but virtually unlimited power supply. While a number of approaches have been attempted, researchers at MIT have now developed a completely new method based on electrochemical principles, which could be capable of harvesting energy from a broader range of natural motions and activities, including walking.

Members of the MADMEC group Mechatracity were involved in the research that was published.
