Welcome to the Integrated Self-Powered Sensing Lab at the Univ. of Utah Dept of Mechanical Engineering.

Our research focuses on wireless sensing systems that harvest their own power allowing sensors and sensing systems to operate battery-free and completely untethered. More generally we work on sensors, electromechanical transducers, and mechatronic system design. - Shad Roundy
