I had to laugh when I first read your post Nadine because I went bike riding this evening and  kept at a pretty good pace, so my first thought was that my rapid heart beat could have provided the mechanical energy for a heart monitor but then I realized you meant the vibration caused by the impact/motion  of the runner's feet going up and down with impact.

I agree.  This is really cool.  What else can this be applied to?  Heart monitors for runners?

I like this! Simple and economical using already known technology that does not require an additional power source...and adds to vehicle safety. Can't get much better than this!

This is a perfect application for energy harvesting. With it, the vehicle uses no onboard energy source to power the TPM system, other than the tires themselves. Another great energy harvesting story, Liz.

I like this Elizabeth. Here's a very good real-world application for environmental energy harvesting. This is a great solution to the problem of providing a power source for tire pressure sensors.
