Researchers continue to search for improved solutions to power the many wireless, wearable sensing devices that are being developed to avoid frequent, or as frequent, charging and/or battery replacement. Two of the prominent research areas include thermoelectric generators (TEGs) and piezoelectric energy harvesters. With wearable thermoelectric generators (TEGs), the amount of thermo‐generated power strongly depends […]
Using surface electromyograms, or human muscle signals, researchers at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology were able to get a robot to trap a ball like a soccer player. KIST’s team did this without numerical calculation or programming.
