Energy harvesting Technology to make streets safer

A smart sensor for environmentally friendly energy harvesting could help make roads safer by identifying potentially dangerous driver behavior.

Triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) are an emerging technology that harvests freely available mechanical energy from daily human activities. In a study published by Nano Energy, the engineers from the University of Surrey reveal how they used recycled plastic cups and silk cocoon scraps to develop a soft, skin-friendly self-powered sensor that can be used to detect human activities. For more information, see the IDTechEx report on Triboelectric Energy Harvesting and Sensing (TENG) 2020-2040.

When paired with an AI system and applied in a car …
