Flexible piezoelectric energy harvesting from jaw movements - Abstract - Smart Materials and Structures - IOPscience

Flexible piezoelectric energy harvesting from jaw movements - Abstract - Smart Materials and Structures - IOPscience | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
Piezoelectric fiber composites (PFC) represent an interesting subset of smart materials that can function as sensor, actuator and energy converter. Despite their excellent potential for energy harvesting, very few PFC mechanisms have been developed to capture the human body power and convert it into an electric current to power wearable electronic devices. This paper provides a proof of concept for a head-mounted device with a PFC chin strap capable of harvesting energy from jaw movements. An electromechanical model based on the bond graph method is developed to predict the power output of the energy harvesting system. The optimum resistance value of the load and the best stretch ratio in the strap are also determined. A prototype was developed and tested and its performances were compared to the analytical model predictions. The proposed piezoelectric strap mechanism can be added to all types of head-mounted devices to power small-scale electronic devices such as hearing aids, electronic hearing protectors and communication earpieces.

Reverse urbanization, end of parking are some of the ways autonomous cars may change our lives. What would the impact on business be? Continuous delivery, where delivery vans make delivery routes 24-7?Predictive support, where support personnel are dispatched throughout an area where their service may be needed in the future, working in the car in between jobs?Warehouse on wheels, with high velocity items made available for order online and delivery in minutes?Travelling office, where sales team work out of small vans as they travel from one client to the next?
Mark Muller's curator insight, October 19, 2014 7:26 PM

I think autonomous (self-driving) cars will be the next major revolution in real estate. An autonomous campervan or bus could easile be converted into a mobile office or retail shop, eliminating the need for leasing a fixed tenancy.

 

Imagine a small office could be totally run from a moving bus, even picking up employees from home or train stations and transporting them to meetings as others work inside.

 

Maybe future landlords will lease both fixed and mobile property?

Why Is Telemedicine Suddenly Hot?

Why Is Telemedicine Suddenly Hot? | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
Google's recent announcement that it will provide telemedicine services was the crescendo to a swelling volume of recent interest. Telemedicine has been around for a generation. Why is this happening now? The new driving force is the rebirth of relationship medicine.

Via Philippe Marchal, Lionel Reichardt / le Pharmageek

Art Jones's curator insight, November 2, 2014 8:02 PM

"Tele Medicine is expanding because broadband network coverage is improving, patients and doctors are more comfortable with computers, pressure for cost savings is increasing, and an emerging policy consensus favors telemedicine. This all makes sense. But, these forces have been at play for a decade or more and hence don’t account for the current inflection point (1) of interest in telemedicine.


The new driving force is the rebirth of relationship medicine. By “relationship medicine” I mean a paradigm of medical practice that puts the relationship between the patient and the doctor at the center. The most important relationship is with the primary care doctor, because that relationship is life-long, and the primary care doctor is most concerned with the patient’s total health status and long term prospects. This is how much of medicine was done in the 1950s, but it declined as Medicare and health insurers “industrialized” medicine, slicing doctors’ time finer and finer and putting patients on a medical assembly line that moves them past doctors for ever-shorter office visits. This echoes Henry Ford’s industrialization of car assembly.
