Transforming vibrations into electricity could facilitate self-powered IoT sensors

The new energy-generating device was made by combining piezoelectric composites with carbon fibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP), a commonly used material that is both light and strong. This composition allows it to transform vibrations from the surrounding environment into electricity. "Everyday items, from fridges to street lamps, are connected to the internet…
