A Shoe-Embedded Piezoelectric Energy Harvester for Wearable Sensors

  title={A Shoe-Embedded Piezoelectric Energy Harvester for Wearable Sensors},
  author={Jingjing Zhao and Zheng You},
Harvesting mechanical energy from human motion is an attractive approach for obtaining clean and sustainable electric energy to power wearable sensors, which are widely used for health monitoring, activity recognition, gait analysis and so on. This paper studies a piezoelectric energy harvester for the parasitic mechanical energy in shoes originated from human motion. The harvester is based on a specially designed sandwich structure with a thin thickness, which makes it readily compatible with… CONTINUE READING
