Embedding piezoelectric and electronic elements into glass fiber reinforced plastics (GRFP) opens up new possibilities for designing smart devices. The ambition of developing smart glass fibre reinforced plastics (GFRP) with integrated smart materials and electronics is to provide complete freedom in designing new multifunctional structures, components or products. Therefore, piezoelectric components are embedded in GRFP to provide different functionalities such as energy harvesting, sensing and actuating. These features can be realized within a structure, for instance in housings, floors or furniture. The actuators can be used e.g. as loudspeakers to play sounds or alert signals.
It is possible to create large smart sensor-actuator networks by interconnecting e.g. multiple smart panels via “Plug’n Play” mechanics. The panels shown in the following figures are just exemplarily and can be modified in quantity, size, shape (e.g. thickness & roundness) and functionality according to customer’s requirements.
