re: Vibration energy harvesting for wireless sensor networks: Assessments and perspectives

I wish figures were hyperlinked to their larger size versions; figure 2 which is an important one to understand is unreadable; same problems with figure 5, and 7. I did like the authors' tripartite approach the energy harvesting and utilization problem. Surely, the approach can be extended to multiple spring mass systems; such an ensemble has the advantage of not needing fine tuning to optimize a system as long as the bounds of the dominant resonant frequencies are known.

@anne-francoise.pele; I appreciate the follow up and the links (& the larger versions of figures in the article!). The need for cost-effective energy harvesting sensor nodes can not be overstated and is critical to deploying sensor networks for infrastructure monitoring. MP Divakar
