NEARLY COMPLETED PZ EARTH INSTALLATION

Kennedy Space Center and GTRI partnered to create an interactive piezoelectric installation that combines piezoelectric technology, solar energy generation, and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi communication. Not only is this large scale installation completely self-powered, each of the 336 active tiles communicate  and record when a user is interacting with it, giving the user instant feedback as well as data aggregation for the park. As this system continues to develop, new and exciting interactions can be implemented.
