Piezoelectric composites for motion sensors

324 20230119 analyzing sweat via microelectronic fibers tAn international research group has engineered a novel, high-strength flexible device by combining piezoelectric composites with unidirectional carbon fibre, an anisotropic material that provides strength only in the direction of the fibres.

The new device transforms kinetic energy from human motion into electricity, providing an efficient and reliable means for high-strength and self-powered sensors.
