Ambient vibration is all around us.
It could power remote sensors that would monitor driving conditions, predict failing infrastructure, and even remediate road traffic.

Large numbers of devices in a sensor network inexorably reduce the maintenance interval. Prolonging the sensor lifetime would greatly improve scalability and autonomy.
Unobtrusive monitoring devices would greatly benefit heavy, remote infrastructures such as in petrochemical pipeline and equipment (e.g., pumps).
Unschedule maintenance of various assets in transportation and energy would be mitigated with real-time monitoring and predictive analytics of structural health data.
Pyro-E custom designs and deploys solid-state technologies for energy harvesting applications. Our electromechanical device could extract energy from low-frequency, intermittent vibrations befitting of buildings, train rails, oil/gas pipelines, etc. By coupling with commercial sensors, vibrational energy harvesting enables other devices to operate without wiring, thus paving for an interconnected future that is attainable today.
Foreseeably, Pyro-E's unique perpetual sensor solution will 1) enable Smart Cities, 2) improve urban mobility, and 3) utilize a greater portion of the renewable energy resources.
