Energy Sensing and Harvesting Cantilever

Abstract
An energy harvesting cantilever formed from multiple curved sections, with each curved section wrapped within the prior curved section but in an opposing direction, is the proposed solution to the problems described above. Such an energy harvesting cantilever favors bending over torsion, can be manufactured at a small scale, and will generate useful electrical energy with low frequency inputs.
