Please avail of this opportunity by informing your research colleagues to keep up in touch, engage and submit your ideas to us while we start our journey to open labs across our partner sites.



New Simulation Tool

A new resource for the VA users has been implemented in the RealVibrations repository: a simulation tool which allows the users to upload a vibrational signal, and to calculate the simulated energy which could be harvested by a piezoelectric inductive oscillator, with the possibility to change the oscillator parameters. The simulation tool is currently in his basic version, but it will be furtherly improved.

If you are not a registered VA user, please submit an enquiry requesting access to Vibration Databases to become one.
