Electronic components for piezoelectric tiles

Electronic components for piezoelectric tiles

Ilan Stern, a GTRI senior research scientist, holds examples of the electronic components that will be used in piezoelectric tiles that will be used to create a lighted outdoor footpath at the NASA Kennedy Space Center’s Visitor Complex at Cape Canaveral, Florida. The tiles are powered by piezoelectric components that generate current when they are compressed, flexed or vibrated. (Credit: Branden Camp, Georgia Tech)
