Efficient energy harvesting from human motion using wearable piezoelectric shell structures

Abstract

This paper proposes and demonstrates an efficient energy harvesting scheme for general human motion by using piezoelectric shell structures. Although human motion is random and slow movement, fast transition of shell structure can convert mechanical energy into electrical energy efficiently. The shell structure was formed by attaching a polyvinylidene… (More)
