The Vibrations and Energy Harvesting Laboratory at the University of Waterloo is involved in numerous research activities using cutting edge technologies such as vibrations, modal analysis, shape control and dynamics of inflatable gossamer space structures, vibrations energy harvesting solutions using smart materials and hybrid solutions, smart materials solutions for actuation and sensing for physiological applications, noise and acoustics abatement for manufacturing facilities for ergonomics improvement and GNSS reflectometry for quadcopters and remote soil and ice sensing.

There is over $1 million of equipment in this lab, including LMS data acquisition systems, B&K acoustics DAQ, shaker, laser vibrometer and several kinds of smart materials.
