Researchers collaborate on packaging that can power itself

26 October 2017

Professor Gregory Batt and alumnus James Gibert are combining forces to develop packaging that can energize itself. The work will provide the foundation for technology for smart packaging and powering sensors to monitor products while they are transported.
“The demand for and application of smart packaging devices used during the transport and storage of products continues to increase. Most of these devices require power. Development of an energy harvesting device that can harvest power from forces naturally occurring in the distribution environment while possibly mitigating those forces experienced by the product just makes sense,” Batt said (Press Release Clemson University, 19 October 2017).
