    Hello there,

    I am doing a project where I am thinking of harvesting the energy from the vibration, So I am thinking of using Piezo vibration sensors which converts mechanical vibration to the electric charge. The problem is I am not sure which one to use and how much energy it can produce. Are there different type of Piezo vibration sensors which gives different output at the same vibration level? Which one would be the best one choose for better power? Can some one help me to choose the right sensor which has a high output voltage range. How do i choose these sensor and on what basis do I choose them?
