This paper discusses the simulation studies on a vibration based energy harvesting system to convert the undesirable mechanical vibration to useful green power. The design consists of a resonating proof mass and a spring system enclosed in housing and fixed on the source of vibration. A piezoelectric suspension acts as the transducer and generates a voltage that is used to charge the batteries of ...

The primary function of the vestibular system is to provide the brain with information about the body\'s motion and orientation. The absence of this information causes blurred vision and spatial disorientation, vertigo, dizziness, imbalance, nausea, vomiting, and other symptoms often characterize dysfunction of the vestibular system. Our aim is to design vestibular prosthesis using COMSOL ...

Micro-grippers find applications in micro-robotics, microsurgery, micro-fluidics, micro-relays, assembling and miniature medical instrumentation. Actuation principle involved may be electrothermal, electrostatic, piezoelectric, shape memory and electromagnetic. It has been found that thermal actuation provides greater displacement at low voltages when compared to other mechanisms. A 3-D ...

In this paper, we have proposed an impedance biosensor based on polymer nanowire (made of polyaniline) for efficient electric field mediated capture of biomolecules. Existing polymer nanowire based biosensors fail to achieve high sensitivity for low surface to volume ratio as the whole length of the nanowire is exposed to the analyte .Also biosensors are dependent on diffusion mediated capture of ...
