Environment – New Energy Potential — A Wireless Sensor Powered by Small Vibrations

Eliminates the Need for Wiring and Battery Replacement by Measuring and Transmitting Data Using Vibration-Generated Electric Power

In 2012, Mitsubishi Electric Engineering Co., Ltd. developed a sensing system that generates electric power via the minor vibrations that occur generally to wirelessly transmit data collected using a sensor. Up to now, the small vibrations that occur generally have attracted little or no interest. This innovative system that takes full advantage of vibrations enables the measurement and transmission of data in locations where securing a power source and the changing of batteries is difficult.
