Abstract

In this paper we present a triboelectric generator realized with ultra-low cost materials, assembled through a very simple in-house fabrication facility. The triboelectric generator is designed to harvest the mechanical energy from shocks. Different combinations of low-cost materials such as acetic, neutral and acrylic silicone was explored to increase device performances. The device prototypes, characterized under various working conditions show a generated output power of 25µW with an applied load of 50 MΩ, which makes this technology solution very attractive for embedded energy-autonomous sensors system solutions.
