For applications including Sensing, transmitting, acting, and implanting medical technology wirelessly, compact, low-power devices may now be continuously powered by energy harvesting technologies, which have made tremendous strides in the previous ten years. Using piezoelectric energy harvesting has received much interest from academics due to its benefits of simple architecture, high power density, and good scalability. Piezoelectric energy harvesting has been a prominent topic in the literature. An in-depth analysis of the most recent developments in piezoelectric energy harvesting was provided in this paper. The discussion covers several crucial elements that can help an energy harvesting device perform better overall, including fundamental concepts and designs, materials and fabrication, mechanisms for performance increase, applications, and future possibilities are all covered.
