Self-powered MC-TENG device aims to foil forest fires

Researchers have developed MC-TENG, a remote forest fire detection and alarm system powered by the movement of the trees. The new device generates electrical power by harvesting energy from the sporadic movement of the tree branches from which it hangs (Image: MSU) MC-TENG Developed at Michigan State University (MSU), MC-TENG – multi-layered cylindrical triboelectric nanogenerator … Continue reading Self-powered MC-TENG device aims to foil forest fires
