Triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) are one of the most promising energy harvesting methods available for next-generation wearables, autonomous devices and sensors, and the Internet-of-things (IoT), which can efficiently convert ambient mechanical energy into useful electricity. It can be implemented in clothing, shoes, walkways, and moving parts in automobiles, harvest suitable energy to drive many types of portable/wearable/implantable electronics that at present, and are predominantly powered by batteries. In order to move the current state-of-the-art in practical devices to realistic technologies, much development is still needed. These requirements we envisage will be accelerated with the help of theoretical models and simulations, which can be verified and refined using an empirical route to best fit experimental data. This will give rise to self-validated models that allow for predictive design of TENG devices for specific applications using computer-aided design (CAD) and simulators.
