A Single-Electrode Based Triboelectric Nanogenerator as Self-Powered Tracking System



A newly designed triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) is demonstrated based on a contact-separation process between an Al foil and a finite size polyamide (PA) film. The working mechanism is based on charge transfer between the Al foil and ground. A 4×4 matrix of TENG array can be used for tracking motion by recording the output voltages signals in real-time to form a pressure map.
